Feeling Good Today

So after feeling so crappy yesterday and cutting my run a bit short, I was planning for a quick run and then some martial arts a little later. The martial arts plans fell through, so I went and did the run anyway.

The weather was kinda crumby so I ran inside on the indoor track here. Its a lot smaller so it ends up being 1 mile is 7 laps. The math gets funky when your trying to run 400m at a time so I ended up doing 2 laps in place of 400m, 4 laps in place of 800m, and 8 laps in place of 1600m (and ya I know, 7 laps would be a mile, but it was just easier on my brain to work it like this..).

I stuck with my three 2x400m, 1x800m routine, which ended up being 2x2 laps (457m), 1x4 laps (914m).
After the last 1x4 I was feeling good so I just kept going for another 8 laps. After that I did another 2x2 and 1x4 and then this is were it got fuzzy... lol I think I either did another 2x8 (for 2 more 'miles') or I did another 2x2 and 1x4 and then another 1x8 for a total of 48-50ish laps. Did one walking cool down lap, but all in all I did about 7 miles. Total run time without the walking lap was 58:12, so average of 8:30 per mile

Maybe a leisure run tomorrow or something.. well see... And maybe I can convince someone to join me on one of these interval runs over the weekend.... *cough*
