|So this post got broken up into 5 parts, sorry for that. One of these days I'll figure out how to get all the workouts posted together. |
Today was a good day for Willie! I got up early and hit the track with my speed work partner to do 4 x 800 meters with a 2 minute rest between. I was supposed to hit 2:58 for each 800 but knew I couldn't do that. I set my goal at 3:15 per and also mandated that we abide by the 2 minute rest period (we cheated last week on the mile repeats and rested longer).
So my buddy took off as he normally does and left me in the dust on the first 800. I hit 3:11, he hit 2:45. My right leg felt really tight so it wasn't smooth but I hit my time goal. The 2 minutes flew by and before I knew it I was being left in the dust again. This time I hit 3:10, he hit 2:50. By now I was warmed up and felt a little better.
I stopped asking him for his time after the 3rd 800 but I kept my pace and hit 3:09 and 3:10 for my last two. We jogged back to the gym and did some core work (Pilates) to finish up. All in all a great morning.
When I left work today I had an awesome sky full of big puffy clouds. I wanted to get a picture but we are not allowed to have cameras so I will have to keep it in my head for now. I thought it was Gustav but learned later that it was just a cold front moving through. YEA Cold Front! Gustav won't be here until tomorrow.
