Track Workout - 9-9-09

Track workouts and cool weather rock! For someone that loves to run long distance, its funny how much I love to hit the track.

Here is the workout we did this morning:

1 x 800 warm up
6 x 200 (:54) - 100 recovery
6 x 300 (1:21) - 200 recovery
5x 400 (1:49) - 300 recovery
1 x 800 cool down

This was about five miles total. The recovery distance was to be done in the same time as the running distance.

I was hitting all my splits and all of the stiffness I had felt the day before was gone:

200 (:54, :54, :55, :54, :52, :52)
300 (1:18, 1:19, 1:21, 1:21, 1:21, 1:20)
400 (1:46, 1:50, 1:49, 1:48, 1:38)

That last 400 was a little fast because I was running with another person. I finished up with an 800 cool down and was really happy with the workout. I felt tired, but good tired...


  1. AH, the elusive track. One day I'll get there. Well done on your track work, it's awesome that you love it.

  2. Its crazy too. I would have never thought I would be excited to get to the track. One thing I do is zone out the rest of the people out there, I just focus on my times and pace. That way I am never trying to compare my self to those guys that have been running track thier whole live!
