Lanier needs to do the workout early, like beginning at 5:00 AM. I just was not able to start that early any day this week. Next week, I will be. Matt is needing some time off for some soreness. So, it was just me. Track workouts are much more difficult alone. There's nobody to complain to during the rest.
I decided to mix it up a bit this morning based on my reading of Road Racing for Serious Runners I decided to do some 1200m intervals and jog instead of stop for rest. So I was aiming for 4 repeats of 4:45 per 0.75 mile with a 0.25 mile jog between. I was going to use the newly surfaced 400m track around the football field, but the football team was there practicing at 6:30, so I was back to the walking track. I did get to do a lap on the track before they started, and that new surface is NICE. It's springy!
- 4:59 (ugh)
- 4:46 (had to avoid traffic!)
