Three Workouts in Twenty Hours

The Palmetto200 is in less than a month, so its time to ramp up the training.

The Palmetto200 is a 200 mile relay race from Columbia to Charleston, SC (Folly Beach).  It starts on April 30, 2010 and ends sometime on May 1, 2010.  There are twelve runners on my team and we each will have to run three legs of the race.  Depending on which leg I start I could be running in the morning, afternoon, evening or middle of the night.  My training for this month will try to match some of the conditions I will be forced to deal with during the race.

After the race on Saturday, I took a much needed rest day.  Monday afternoon I did a six mile recovery run in Downtown Charleston.

I started my three workouts on Tuesday afternoon with a four mile run (8:50 pace).  Then, after work, I did a four mile track workout: 1x400 warm up; 6x1000 (7:45 pace / 2:30 recover).  I finished up with a five mile tempo run this morning (8:45 pace).

I felt great during the workouts and will do more of these as I get closer to the race.

  1. Have you talked to your coach about these crazy workouts. He's off his rocker.

  2. Love the relay races! I did Ragnar Relay Las Vegas last year and it was really fun. Our team is going to try and do it again this year.

    My runs started at 7 p.m., 4:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., so I didn't have to run at too crazy of hours. But this year I want to run in the middle of the night. That will be fun!

  3. cool. relay sounds fun...better keep that headlamp handy!

  4. My coach is crazy so he knows all about it...

    I really am stoked about doing a relay. I like everyone on the team, I just hope they bring deodorant :)
