Latest Run (Week 4, Day 5)

Capping off the week with another run. I want to compare my previous runs this week with today's run. So I came up with the following table:

Interval5/75/85/105/11
Jog #1 (6 mins)13:1913:1812:5112:10
Walk #1 (4 mins)19:5117:0819:2619:41
Jog #2 (6 mins)12:4113:1212:1912:06
Walk #2 (4 mins)19:5317:5619:2623:22
Jog #3 (6 mins)11:2312:1812:3812:00
Walk #3 (4 mins)19:3017:2320:0018:18
OVERALL15:4615:5915:3915:12

Today's run felt even better than yesterday. So far, today has been my best run. Fastest in terms of pace (15:12 mins/mi overall). I also like the consistency of my runs on each interval -- low 12:00+ mins/mi in each of the 3 intervals.

With that, I will look to increase the difficulty level of my run up a notch next week. No runs on Saturdays and Sundays to let me system recover a bit. Until then, happy weekend everyone!

Running Journal Overview: This is a run series journal that I aim to update regularly. My objective for posting is to give myself a check and hopefully implant the discipline of being consistent with my fitness plan into my system. I invite everyone who comes across this journal to also adopt a healthier lifestyle and be more active and fit. Your fitness goals may not be the same as mine, but let's try to achieve our goals together.
