Pre Race Track Workout

My track workout this morning was geared at setting my pace for my 15K race in the morning:

1x800 warm up
Agility Drills
2x400 (full recovery)
2x800 (full recovery)
1x1200 (full recovery)
1x800 cool down

I was working on hitting a 8:00 pace on all of my runs.  I felt pretty good, but I was a little fast on the first two 400's.  I finally found my pace and ran pretty close on the 800's and the 1200.

I was watching the weather today before I went to pick up my race packet.  Everyone was talking about how cold and rainy its going to be.  I had not registered for the race, so if I decided not to do it I was not going to be out any money.  Then it hit me, how often do I get to run a race two miles from my house and freeze my ass off?  How many times will I get a chance to run on the island with a bunch of people fighting crazy wind and pouring rain?  How sick is that?  I love it!

I really do hate running in the cold, but I love running in the rain.  Who knows, this could be my best run ever.  I am certain I will set a new Personal Best, well it's my first 15K so I have to set a PB :)

I headed to the packet pickup and got my awesome shirt and race number (not much else).  I did notice that the race is sponsored by Starbucks so there's hope that they will have coffee on hand!


  1. Best of luck tomorrow for your first 15K! But hey, you're right...automatic PR! So CONGRATS already! :) Don't you just love those PR's?

    Have a great weekend, Noah!
