Triangle Strides

Time: 46:16
Distance: 10.40 km
Pace: 4:27/km

In what has become the Tuesday evening "workout," Meagan and I ran over to the Salem Common for some strides. We have kept the 5 laps of alternating hard/easy our distance, but today just wasn't my day. I felt terrible from the start and never could get rolling. I have never actually timed the strides section of the run but I know roughly what my kilometer splits are. Once I start running hard the three splits I get usually look something like 3:50, 3:42, 3:39. Tonight they were something like 3:52, 3:49, 3:48. I felt terrible. Also, I usually finish about a full straightaway (~200m) ahead of Meagan but tonight it was more like 70 meters.
