Todays workout was a speed workout at the track. I waited until 12 so I could bring Tyler to his guitar lesson and then run, as his lesson is only a few blocks from the track.
This meant that I had to run in 85 degree weather, a thunderstorm on the way and a nice high dew point.
I had been doing speed work prior to Grandmas Marathon (June 18) as I wanted to break the 4 hour mark, and did, in 3:59!
Back to the track I went, in search of a 3:50 at Twin Cities Marathon in October, to qualify for Boston.
My workout went very well. Better than I anticipated: Yasso 800's
Warm Up: 1 mile..8:10
Recovery 400: 2:30
Recovery 400: 2:31
Recovery 400: 2:45
Recovery 400: 2:50
Cool Down: 1 mile..8:30
The plan was to run each 800 in 3:45-3:50 as I want to run a 3:50 marathon. I ran each 800 better than I planned. Just as I was finishing the cool down mile the sky opened up and down came the rain.
Next week I'll try 8 of the 800's.
