Played a few games of basketball this morning. Planning on a track workout this evening after driver's ed.
Really good workout tonight. I've tried a few times to do some 1000m repeats but have not been able to do much of a workout, due to either feeling sick or dealing with bad weather. This afternoon, I felt really good and decided before hand that I wanted to do 6 repeats no matter how slow I had to run them.
It was kind of nice, I decided not to do driver's ed tonight, so I got home a little earlier and then did a 2.5 mile warm-up over to Hurricane High School. The high school track team was still practicing, but Coach Prince said it wasn't a problem at all if I wanted to do my workout, so that was nice, except for having to dodge kids standing and visiting in lane 1, plus had to watch out for high school kids learning how to throw the javelin.
Anyway got started and the first three repeats felt great, 4th one not too bad, but the 5th was kind of a struggle. I was ready to stop after 5, but I just decided to give myself a little more recovery and then really tried to push it on the last one. I was really pleased with the consistency of the repeats and I was right in time zone I was shooting for 3:33-3:38. I did 100 m recovery between each which was about 1:30.
Did two more lap to finish to make it 5 miles on the track, then a very easy 2.5 miles home. Good start to the week and one big workout in the bag.
