Track workout (Chester HS) 47:43 3.6 mi (13:15 / mi) +7m13:11 / mi ahr:115 max:149 1c
Snows gone, nice cloudy mild day. Best day for track so far. Mix of 200's and 400's. Got improvement as I went along, so did an extra 400 that proved to be the fastest despite feeling pooped on the last half.
Best: 200 - 45, 400 - 1.53
Heading out to the track, caught a fat beaver waddling across the driveway. Dove into the upstream side, slapped his tail and went submarine. Guess we can expect more chewing on the nearby trees.
Road Running hills (Grainery Chester) 1:42:47 7.16 mi (14:21 / mi) +146m13:30 / mi ahr:117 max:150
Found a moderate hill by the grain store in town with 1/3 mile steady climb. Did a half dozen laps and then figured I was in steady state condition, so experimented with pace. First, stretched to a longer stride and got a pretty fair time. Then shorter stride but higher tempo. That was faster yet. Finally combined high turn over with a little stretch and that got best time of the day, 3:22.
