06/24/2014 6 miles, Progressive Farlek Run

I have much better energy today.  I was able to get a good workout in and some decent mileage.  I started with a 1 mile warmup.  I then proceeded into a Fartlek run where the first 1/4 mile of each mile I ran hard, followed by 3/4 of a mile jogging.  Also, each start of a new mile got faster, hence the progressive nature. The whole workout took me about 50:12.  It looked like this:

1 mile warm up in 9:15ish


1/4 mile in 1:45 (that's 7:00/mile pace)
3/4 mile jog

1/4 mile in 1:30 (6:00/mile pace)
3/4 mile jog

1/4 mile in 1:24 (5:36/mile pace)
3/4 mile jog

1/4 mile in 1:20 (5:20/mile pace)
3/4 mile jog

1 mile cool down in 8:15ish
