Today officially begins my training run up to the Peachtree Road Race. Today’s run called for 4 miles – Fartleks. I headed to a 1/4 mile oval track at a park near my home to get my run in.
Overall, I was really pleased. I attempted to run 4 x 1/4 mile at 7 minute pace with a 1/4 mile rest in-between. The details are below, but I ended up running the 4 x 1/4’s at 1:44, 1:47, 1:47, and 1:54.
The hardest thing to deal with today was the wind. The temps were great, but I was running into a strong head wind down one of the straightaways on the track, and it really took it out of me.
