track tuesdays

Today's goal was to leave it all on the track.  I wasn't sure I had it in me today, but I'm pleased with how it ended up.  One mile warm up, 4x1200s with 400 recovery, and then 2x400 and a 2 lap cool down. Here are the times for the 1200s, they were a bit all over the place.  I didn't think I had anything left after 3 but I'm glad I tried the 4th because it ended up being the best of the lot.

5:50, 6:05, 5:57, 5:48

I was content to stop after the 1200s but my running buddy suggested just one or two 400s and I didn't have a good reason not to try. I'm glad I did.

1:48, 1:42

I know I'm not a speed demon by any stretch of the imagination but I'm happy with my times. I can tell that after just a few interval workouts that I am improving, and Coach George told me it was my best workout so far. That definitely made me smile, something that was desperately needed this morning.

Did anyone else start their day off with a workout today?  What did you do?


  1. Nice job this morning! Great to meet you in person!

  2. Wow, that is a super speedy end to the workout. Nice job. I'm so glad you're a regular out there now--and I hope the workout did what you needed it too mentally.
