What a beautiful spring day in Middle Tennessee with sunny skies and high’s in the mid-60s. This awesome day made for a perfect evening for a track workout with the JSRC. Tonight’s workout consisted of 2-sets of…
- 800m (200m)
- 600m (200m)
- 400m (200m)
- 3 x 200m (100m) [800m]
This made for a fairly long workout with 5-miles of intervals and recoveries. I ended up running slightly harder than in recent workouts, but I think a lot of that had to do with the great weather and having all easy-paced runs so far this week. My legs and lungs felt pretty good throughout the workout, though my pace lagged by a few seconds in the second 600m and in two of the final three 200m intervals. Always room for improvement.
With warmup the final total was 8.3-miles completed on the night. Tomorrow the schedule calls for 4 easy-paced miles with 4 x 100m stride outs, and it is supposed to be below 40 degrees again. I guess that means at least one more day wearing tights. I’m hoping that it will be warm enough Saturday morning to not have to wear tights for the scheduled 14-miler.
