Good day of training
It was a good and tough day of running. Ran with my German friend and co-worker, Jurgen, during lunch hour. He's at much higher level of running than me, but it was good to have someone to run with and chase after. Following 20 minutes of easy running we did 8 x 3 minutes hard followed by 2 minutes easy. I tried to stay within 20 meters of him during the hard periods. I succeeded in doing so with the exception of the last repeat when the legs were done. I ended up running the 3-minute hard periods at 5:05-5:15 pace. In the evening I ran a very easy 6 miles. 18 miles total for the day.
