Very happy with this workout.  Didn't really decide I was doing it until after the warmup.  I was solo tonight so I figured I'd try something new. The workout was 1x1mile, 400 recovery, 13x400 with ascending rest/jogs starting at 10 seconds between each 400 and then little by little ascending with 10 second increments until reaching 60 seconds between each and holding there.  The workout wasn't bad at all, which is funny because when you do it the other way around it's practically impossible (descending rest and then the mile at the end).  The first mile was a bit slow since I didn't really know what to expect out of myself with the short rests after the first couple 400s.  Next time I run it I'll be a bit more honest.
