8/17: 6x1200

Today I did a solid trackworkout: 6x1200 meters with more rest than last week but faster interval pace. It was more of a 5k-10k workout vs a half marathon workout...BUT it will help my half marathon time in hindsight. I feel myself getting fitter and fitter each week.

3:36, 3:36, 3:37, 3:39, 3:39, 3:33

averaged out to 3:36-3:37(4:48-4:49 pace)

Since I was averaging about 4:48-4:49 pace, a workout like this makes 5:00 pace seem not as fast. Training is going well this week. Looking foward to a good long run this Saturday.


  1. What was the rest, and what shape for 5k were you in at the time? Just curious, as this is a bread and butter workout for me but I haven't raced in a while. I typically do 90s rest and average somewhere around 3:58.

  2. A few weeks later I ran a 15:22 road 5K, and then in September I ran 1:08:39 for the half marathon. Hope that helps to give you an idea. I can't remember what the rest was....this was 5 years ago!
