Don’t be fooled by the displayed pace from today’s run. Thankfully, I haven’t slowed down. My walking for recovery is included in the stats.
I was up early to drop BoBo off at school; he had to be there early to catch the bus to the football game.
Afterwards, I drove to the nearby school where they have just finished the brand new track. It’s the nice cushy surface, and so new that you can still see the chalk lines from where they measured to mark the lines, dashes, and triangles on the surface.
They obviously don’t want everyone using it. I had to walk around the fence for a while before I could find the entrance. It’s an opening in the fence where the chain is loose enough to slide past. It was worth the persistence.
I had felt cheated out of my Wednesday speed work. My legs had gotten their baby-ing and now it was time for them to perform. I was more than ready for some Yasso’s. I wanted to be sure to get a good amount of repeats in, but I didn’t have a lot of time to spare. My workout was not exactly as yasso’s are meant to be. I walked during my rest periods rather than an easy jog. But generally, my rest was only 3:30 so it kind of evened out.
After a few programming issues, I finally got in the groove. My repeats came out real nice. I probably could have done 8 repeats if I had more time.
#1 – 3:40 (7:21/mi)
#2 – 3:50 (7:29/mi)
#3 – 3:40 (6:54/mi)
#4 – 3:30 (6:40/mi)
#5 – 3:34 (6:57/mi)
#6 – 3:46 (7:27/mi)
Not bad, huh?
I’ve got 12 miles lined up for Sunday. I’ll see tomorrow, just how tired my legs will be from today’s workout.
EXCELLENT WORKOUT- Have a good run on Sunday!
Nicely done. I’ve got to get back to doing speedwork. I know it’s good for me but I really don’t enjoy it very much.
Today’s 12 should be a breeze.
Ahhh! Well done. I’ve only got 10.5 more months before I can start speed work :)
Great workout. You continue to be right on track!
