Health: good. no tendon pain
Weather: cooled off a bit from the last few days - 70 degrees, nice 5 mph breeze
Ran from home down to Pump Station 65 road. Then began running "approximately" 600 Meters at a fair pace. The odd ones were very slightly downhill and with the wind, the evens are the opposite coming back north from the pump station towards carmel valley road.
I noticed during the third repeat/interval that the road was marked. How I've never noticed that is beyond me, but it was a pleasant discovery. The markers are every 100 m. something about seeing the road marked sped me up. The pairs (down/back) were 2:19/2:17 (6:30 pace), 2:16/2:10 (6:08), 2:04/2:17 (5:54). By the last couple I was feeling it and realized I had probably going a bit too fast. the 3.5 mile run home was sluggish, but I felt good near the end.
