Despite the left leg pain that continues to nag me, I actually did intervals today on the treadmill in my fancy new shoes. I have a hunch that Aspercreme (how OLD am I??) burns when you sweat and soak it in, but it was hard to differentiate from the anterior and posterior muscle/tendon pain.
The workout was 9x800 for a total of 8.0 miles. I did the 800s at: 7.8 mph (7:41 pace), 2x7.9 mph (7:35), 3x8.0 mph (7:30), one at 8.0/8.2 (7:30/7:19), one at 8.2-8.4 (7:19-7:09, and the last one at 8.2-9.0 (up to 6:40 pace). I did 400 rests walking and jogging, 1.0 mi w/u and 0.5 mi c/d. Yes, I was totally wiped.
