My last 2 runs this week had some good splits. They weren't FAST, but the splits looked nice.
First: on Wednesday, I was out for an early morning run, and my knee was feeling OK. So I just kept slowly upping the pace. It wasn't nearly as hard as a tempo run, but it built a little bit of nice speed. CHECK OUT THESE PERFECTLY DESCENDING HALF-MILE SPLITS:
A cool down started after split 9, obviously.
Getting faster before an easier cool down.
(Those dips in speed were going through bigger bridges / smaller tunnels.)
After a 1/2 mile warm-up to get to the trail, the next 8 half-mile splits (4 miles)
were within 5 secs, and my mile splits (starting at a 1/2 mile) were within 6 secs.
I think I've mentioned before that the stroller generally makes me more consistent.
A pretty even pace chart (with 4 slow-downs where I had to give Charlie something).
