Track Track Track

Last weekend’s long run was awesome. I started at 6am (well, I had to make it to tailgate early) and clocked off 15 very comfortable miles. Despite the fact that there was some wide variance of my pace (fastest mile was 6:53, slowest was 7:14), my average was a very solid 7:03/M.

But my track workout yesterday was much more consistent. I ventured back to MSU’s track with the hope that it wouldn’t be closed to runners. Fortunately, it was not. So I plowed through 10 400m. My fastest was 71 seconds and my slowest was 74 seconds; and laps 2-7 were all 73 seconds. Such consistency is rare for me, but I’ll gladly take it.

Great job on both the long run and track workout.

Thanks for keeping the faith on my foot. I may or may not run into you in Chi-town as a drunk, bumbling, half-crying idiot. Yeah, so, look forward to that. LOL!

6:53-7:14 is a wide variance? That's pretty consistent for me. Cheers!

Awesome X 2!

Do me a favor will you? Can you please rub the "wide variance" of your speed work in my face some more? Don't be gentle either, just squish it all up in there. Thanks.

Great track work out. I'll have to try the MSU track as it seems to be faster than mine.

I only hope that, after your triumph at the track, you "owned" a child in some way, just to prove how completely superior you are to that proverbial child ;)
