We hit the track last night.  Um,  why didn't anyone remind me how hard that is??  SHEESH, and you call yourselves(f) (a) friend(s).  Ha ha!!  Here was the workout:  3-10:00's @ 2 minute recovery, or 4-10:00's.  I, for the first time, only did 3.  I actually almost thought of skipping the whole workout, which would have been a first.  I didn't know if I had anything for speed work.

All you need to know, is I think I am close.  Track = knowing your speed.  My mile splits on the 10:00's were 7:07, 7:10, and 7:15, although on the 7:15 I kicked it in the last 1-1/2 minutes to finish further than the other ones.  (I knew I was only doing 3)  If you recall my Thanksgiving 5K my splits were 7:10, 14:20, and a what I think would have been a sub: 22:00 5K if the course wasn't shortened.

Things going in my favor are the race will be on a Saturday MORNING.  I will taper.  My legs won't be obliterated like they are now.  I will also get another track workout in.  Like I said I am close.  Oh and I won't be racing after back-to-back 6 mile runs.  Also at work I walk on concrete floors all day.  I used to think that was bad for me, but now I think it (FINALLY) has made me stronger.  blessing in disguise if you will.  I'll be off those for a good 18 hours.

The track is a beast, and the first session back sure is not a smooth transition.  SHEESH!!

Hope you have a great day!!

Time for me to brush and floss.  ;)
