Speed work 41:00  5.6 mi (7:19 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 2
Fartlek on GSFC perimeter road. 1min-2-3-4-3-2-1 with jog the same time as the preceding interval. The 4 min interval took me from the Parkway entrance almost to the top of the hill at the garden plots. That's a good objective performance measure. Which this kind of workout generally lacks.
Conditions were mildly adverse. I forgot my watch, so I took my phone, running the stopwatch app, wrapped in a map case. (Yes, I have maps at work. I can't remember why.) Even with the phone inside the wrapper I kept hitting the "stop" button accidentally. The 2nd 3-min interval took me past a whole line of leaf blowers blowing exhaust my way, and at the end of that a street sweeper raising up a huge cloud of dirt. Ugh. Plus, it was over 80 with bright sun.
