Tuesday was my usual interval run:
Warm-up 5 minute walk then 10 minute easy jog.
3x15min (5 min. easy jog (HR less than 140), 5 min hard run (HR btwn 150 and 160), and 5 min medium run (HR less than 150). Plus an additonal 5 min with a HR less than 140.
Cool down at least 5 minutesI slept poorly and was a bit nauseous when I woke up, which is weird, because that never happens. I sucked it up and headed out. I decided to run along the IMAZ course at Tempe Town Lake. It was 5 min from my hotel, flat, and well lit. My legs didn't feel all that great going into it, but I was having fun running on new terrain, taking in new sights.
Legs ended up feeling awesome and I managed to run a full minute FASTER than normal. Thank you lower elevation.
