Track Tuesday

It was a cool 54 degrees - so refreshing and invigorating at 5:30 in the morning. Today's workout was fairly short on the track as I have the Westport Island Shore Run 10K coming up this Sunday.
  • Mile warmup
  • 6x400 @ 6:20-6:30 pace w/ 100m rest
  • Half-mile cooldown
Easy peasy...

We drove the race course yesterday so I could get a feel for the hills. It's been awhile since I've been on Westport Island (17 years since high school) and forgot how hilly, but gorgeous it is out there. I swear even though the course is a loop, most of it is uphill.
Okay, so there are downhills, but I only remember a couple significant ones. So far, the weather is calling for a chance of showers with a high of 71. Since the course is somewhat challenging, I'm hoping it's not going to be the sweat-fest that has been my previous two 10K's.
