Had a good 5-mile speed workout

During my 5-mile run, I did four Galloway Cadence Drills. For those not familiar with the drills, you run 30 seconds at a comfortable pace and count the number of times your left foot hits the ground. Then for 30 seconds you run a bit faster, trying to get 1 or 2 more in your count. I got 2 and 3 more in my counts. In between the drills, I ran a slow recovery pace for a couple of minutes.

When I wasn't doing the drills, I ran a faster but still comfortable pace, ranging from 10:45 to 11:30 (most of the time my pace was around 11:00. I was late in getting out, and the temperature was in the high 80s when I ran.
