Speed Work Week 3

on July 2, 2013

For our latest speed work session the board of education decided we could no longer use the local high school track and we were forced to move to a local soccer complex.  First of all, can I just say that running on grass is hard work!  Especially if you have absolutely no shade and the heat index is 101!  

The plan was to run 8 400m repeats and I was supposed to keep my times around 2:35.  I took off for the first lap and ran a 2:09…oops.  The next three were within range but after the fourth I had to sit one out.  The heat was killer and I had that sudden cold (about to pass out) feeling.  You can imagine what happened next.  Each lap was successively slower and I ended with a 2:58.

This week’s speed work was moved to today because Thursday is July 4th and the agenda is hill repeats and 200m repeats.  Hopefully this time around I will be able to pace myself a little better.

In other news, I WON a giveaway on The Hungry Runner blog!  Not just any giveaway either.  I won an entire head to toe running outfit from Brooks!  This is great because I need new shoes and I can’t wait to try out the Infinity run shorts!  I haven’t heard from Brooks yet but I will definitely have to post a photo of my new outfit when I get it!
