Speed Workout

October 23, 2013

Oh I am tired after today’s workout! I ran track workout with Rachelle, Amber and Julia. Rachelle has a race next weekend… So we are here to push her along. 🙂 I have not ran a track workout or a short speed in so long. It was crazy how hard I was breathing, how sore my legs were while running, etc. We started off with a mile and a half warmup. We then ran a mile at about a 5K/10K race pace. It was a 6:10 pace. We ran a lap cool down around the track. Then we ran 4 400’s (1 lap around the track 4 times). We jogged a 200 (half a lap) recovery before we started the next 400. We hit our 400’s at 1:21 every time. I seriously felt like I was going to throw up. 🙂 After the 4 400s we jogged an 800 (half a mile; 2 laps around the track) for a recovery. We then ran a mile on the track at 5K race pace. Our time was 5:58. That felt good. I did a mile cool down (my right leg has been really bothering me lately… It is not a muscle sore or shin splints, it has a deeper ache than that. I do believe it has to do with the rod in my leg, but it has never affected me before like this. Who knows?) Anyway, it was great and I am excited to see how Rachelle does next week! I will admit that it is nice doing speed without having to do it for a race.
