Arrived in beautiful sunny SF this morning and ran from the hotel to Embarcadero down to the GG bridge. Since i didn't have access to a track, i did a fartlek workout. 5:30 hard followed by 3:00 light; repeated 4x.
According to my watch, the two "outs" into the wind toward GG bridge I covered 1.1 and 1.09 miles. The "backs" away from GG covered 1.13 and 1.1. That tranlates into 5:01, 4:52, 5:04 and 5:01 paces. I was hoping for sub 5s but oh well. The beautiful weather made up for it.
