Lactate Threshold Run

I had a real good day of running today. I woke up at 5am and ran an easy 4 miles on the treadmill. After work I had a good workout 12 miles total, which gave me 16 for the day. Here it is:

3 mile warm-up
7 miles @ Tempo pace (6:00, 5:56, 5:52, 5:49, 5:46, 5:42, 5:39) Kind of progressive.
2 mile cool down

As I got faster during this workout I actually felt better and the effort seemed a little easier. I'm also excited about how quickly I recovered from the workout. For my cool down I never got off the treadmill, I just slowed the pace down to 7 minute miles and within 30-45 sec. my heart rate was low again. I think it shows that I'm getting into pretty good shape!

Went to Bears Tooth for dinner. They have the Best Burritos!

Nice workout. Keep it up seems to be progressing really well for ya.

You're right, maybe in a previous post, about working on those downhills. We did a 21 miler over a really hilly course, and that was my coach's input... cruise the uphills and work the downhills.

Keep it up!
