enjoying every second of life and running


Track It

Yesterday was super hot. I had to run 6 Miles with 3 @ 7:20 Pace before our track workout. I got to do my miles around our college campus. It was so nice to see all the old familiar buildings, plus all of the new ones since we went to school. I was melting in the sun and not able to hit my paces at the end.

5.77 Miles Track Warm Up (ISU Campus, 47:59, 8:19 Pace)

Then it was on to track workout. Ryan met us and had Rob doing 400s. My workout was 12 X 200s (4 @ 46, 8 @ 44), it ended up being 4 @ 46, 6 @ 66, and then 1 400. I had some major user error issues and couldn’t seem to work my Garmin to save my life so unfortunately for this workout I don’t have all my splits. Collectively with recovery jogs:

2.52 10 x 200s, 1 x 400 (ISU Track, 2.52 Miles, 22:53, 9:05 Pace)

Followed by a cool down with Rob. 🙂

This morning I took some time off work to meet Ryan at another college campus track for drills. First we did a warm up.

1.04 Miles (IWU Track, 8:21, 8:04 Pace)

Then it was a few 50s and onto drills. We did High Knees, Butt Kicks, Extended High Knees, Quick Feet and Laterals all on the grass barefoot. My muscles have been happily tweaked all day. I love the feeling of that good sore, worked out feeling. I can’t wait to incorporate these each week!

 Tonight I did my 6 Miles Easy on the treadmill.
