Intervals on the Track

This is my 1st week into the 12 week training program in preparation for New Hampshire Marathon.
Monday I ran 3.1 mile trail run near Mohican Forest Headquarters.
Today, however was the 1st interval workout. A 2 mile warm up, 5 x 800 at 3:30 , and finish with a 2 mile cool down. Not to bad as I averaged 3:32, had one bad interval that was over. My heart rate hit 170 as a high with a quick recovery during the 3 minute rest between intervals. Being 58 years old, my measured Max. HR is 192, 170 should be 85% of max. Not to bad.

Count down to 25,000 recorded miles on my log: 24.01 miles to go (24,975.99). Sunday at 10 am at the covered bridge. Will run the purple Lyons Falls loop to make 25,000 miles even. Join us.
