Solo on the Track
I was very happy with tonight's Gate City Striders track workout. It was a somewhat chilly night and all the the guys who I usually do intervals with are getting ready for the Reach the Beach Relay this weekend (good luck guys!) or otherwise just didn't show up. I HATE running "fast" by myself. I need someone to push me and keep me on pace. In all my years of running, I have never been able to run intervals using my own pacing and do it well. Tonight I think I did. The workout was 1600 meters (I did 5:46), 1200m (4:21), 800m (2:51), 800m (2:53), 400m (81), and then 200m (are you crazy?- nothing good is going to come out of me running a 200m- I skipped that one). Thanks to Justin Soucy for timing my splits. I am thrilled that I kept on a good pace throughout the workout. Now I just have to figure out how to do the same in a race!
