Distance: 13.25 mi.
Workout: 6 x 4:00 hard / 2:00 easy; shooting for some sub-tempo pace for the hard sections
Morning run in Central Park from Craig's apartment. As I headed out the door snow was coming down just lightly, but in the park there was more serious snow with significantly more wind which made the going a bit difficult. For the Fartlek, I focused on the effort, rather than trying too hard to figure out my pace. For one of the slightly uphill and windy sections I believe I split a 2:40 (5:20 pace) half mile, which is obviously a bit slow for this type of workout, but I was working fairly hard to be there.
I finished the run feeling a bit tired, but looking forward to an afternoon to relax and the New Year's Eve festivities.
