Progression Run Success

Last night I set out to do a tempo run but decided last minute to try a Progression Run (or my version of a Progression Run).  Again, the beauty of my made up training plan, doing what I want when I want to, without feeling guilty.  I warmed up for a mile and then each mile I tried to go 15 seconds per mile faster than the last mile.  At mile 5, I only did 1/2 a mile at a 6:45 pace and then cooled down with a mile.  I’m pretty proud of myself and how my progressive pacing looked:
progression It's by no means perfect, but it is a start.  It is a fun workout and a nice change to just logging miles or being locked into speedwork at the track.  I definitely think I can do more miles at faster paces next time.
