What were your favorites? What would you add to the list?

Today's Run - Interval Training @ Millard West

1 mile warm-up and 1 mile cool-down.

5 sets of 800 meters at 5K pace - 30 seconds rest - 400 meters at 5K pace. 90 seconds rest between sets. I was way too fast on the first set, unless I'm planning on running a sub 15:00 5K in the near future. Set two, three, and four were pretty close. I picked it up on the last set a little. The wind felt good, but was a challenge from the 50 meter mark to the 250 meter mark.

There was a pack of about 15 adult runners all over the track going various paces and directions. Never seen anything like it before. The workout seemed like I was running intervals and playing Frogger at the same time. No big deal...I'm glad they are out running.
