Run and Pick Ups

Time: 35:47
Distance: 5.34 miles
Pace: 6:41

I needed to get in some additional miles this evening so I went back out through Freedom Park. As I was leaving the park it was time to start with 5 x 20 sec. strides through the neighborhood and bike path. I've had these bursts of speed in my training for the past couple of months and enjoy how they break up a run and introduce a new stimulus. I'm supposed to do them at the end of my run, but I elect to put them in during the last 1.5 miles. I only take 40 seconds rest between them so in 5 minutes the effort is over.
