Speedwork update

I got in my 5:30 a.m. this morning. And I felt great afterward! Here's a quick rundown of how it went:

Warmup (ran from home to the track with striders once on the track): 16:00
1600: 5:45
400R: 1:58
1600: 5:47
800R: 3:54
1600: 5:47
Cooldown (ran 1600 at recovery pace, then headed home): 24:00
Total miles for morning: 9

Then tonight I covered 4.25 miles at easy pace.

Total miles for the day: 13.25

A few times during the morning's speedwork I got a little winded, but not badly, and I never experienced muscle burn. It was just a good, hard, natural effort.

I'm going to try to make the SERC track workout next Tuesday in Solon, if it's happening.


  1. Great work...keep it going. Hope to see you next Tuesday in Solon, under much better conditions than we had this week. It was awful. The temperature dropped into the thirties, and the wind was gusting over 25 mph, not conducive to speed work. Big up to Elizabeth and Barb for going ahead with their workouts, and to Glen for being there for Barb. I was afraid to do further harm to my Achilles, so I did five easy miles and went home.

  2. nice job on the speedwork! It's amazing we get out and do so well on these workouts by ourselves. Company makes it so much easier!
