Belated Sunday Workout Update

During the two mile run on my diagnostic on Saturday my legs felt pretty good. The limiting factor definitely seemed to be my lungs.

This makes sense I guess since I’ve been doing a lot of casual and comfortable cardio and basic strength training but not a lot of interval or threshold work.

Based on that observation, on Sunday I went for a four mile tempo run. I didn’t have a goal except that whenever I felt comfortable I pushed myself a little harder.

I finished at sub-9 minute pace and with a negative split. I think the key to my run improvement is going to be a steady diet of intervals and hard tempo running along with a general increase in run mileage.

Sunday workout: 4-mile run, 35:45.
