6 morning miles from the Y after dropping off Dylan at early morning seminary. During the first mile I thought about my desire to break 20:00 in the 5K and how it won't be possible unless I do speed work - I just don't have the legs, cardio, or mentality to embrace the suck for that long. So I decided to run a 5K pace during mile 2. I didn't have my watch setup for doing that well, so I don't know how long I actually ran 5K-ish pace, but it was probably close to a mile. Also, that stretch of road I ran has massive old growth trees to the South, so my GPS was off quite a bit. I knew I was about a 6:25-30 pace and my watch told me I was 6:45 or higher. So I went for quite a bit, then stopped, really no idea of distance or pace. It tells me 7:15 pace for mile 2, but I started a while after my watch hit mile 2, thinking I could start the mile split when I wanted. Anyhow, that was helpful. I then decided to do another fast mile during mile #5. This time I stopped my watch and reset the screen to show pace and mileage for that lap. I also was in a small tree neighborhood so that helped. I managed a 6:14 pace and it was tough, but manageable. Having not done much speedwork in my life, my pace was all over the place - as low as 5:50 to as high as 6:30s, so I tried to stay in the teens and it worked. I think I'll do Workout Wednesdays and do some faster miles those days, hopefully downtown at the track or on the flat.
