Legs are coming back

Another Speedwork session where I made my times! Tuesday saw 2x(6x400) @ 1:44 after a 2mi warmup, all follwed by a 1mi cooldown. Rest Intervals were 1:30 (well, supposed to be, I took another 10secs to start each lap on a marked line on the track). 1:40, follwed by 1:32 (what?!), 1:39, 1:43, 1:45, 1:44 to finish the 1st set. I must say they didn't seem that hard although I was working each lap. 2nd set: 1:45, 1:40, 1:39, 1:41, 142, and 1:42.
Hit my loop around ICAR before work Wednesday. Calves were tight after being sore on Sunday/Monday. Yoga must have helped some. I've had too many missed sessions this summer. So - the ICAR loop. My standard ~4miler, but this week's time was a good 80 seconds faster than last week's session. Actually - faster by at least that amount every time I've run that in the last few months.

I'm sure the weather has something to do with my improvement this week. Temps have come down to about 67° at night. Looking forward to my 18miler with a temp of 60° Sunday morning!
