2 miles warmup, 8 x (400m + 90 sec rest), 2 x (200m + 200m jog), cool down 0.5 mi. Most of the 400's were 1:45 +/- 1s, but one was 1:23. The two 200's were 37s and 38s.

Ran Friday also: easy fartlek on paved trails at Shoreline park, about 5 miles total. Set my garmin for autolap every quarter mile, and chose different steady paces for the alternate "on laps" ranging from 9:30 to 7:30, with easy jogging for the "rest laps." Felt a little off though, so kept things easy.

5 easy, mindless miles on the Stanford track.

Yesterday: 5 mi easy.

run Sometimes it is good to go to the track and just start running...but it is not easy to keep track of laps. Unless you are wearing a Garmin.

run Very true! The Garmin definitely simplifies keeping track of distance and pace. I also like having the heart rate graphs for future reference.
