Speedwork Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Today's speedwork was the last 800s workout in a progression of 3, with each one increasing by an 800.  My aim is to keep these at 3:10 or below.

On August 6, I ran 6x800s.
3:03, 3:08, 3:07, 3:08, 3:09, 3:08

On August 29, I ran 7x800s.
3:07, 3:09, 3:10, 3:08, 3:09, 3:11, 3:02 (see here)

Today, I ran 8x800s.
It was the first really "cold" morning we've had---weather in the upper 40s last night!  That made a huge difference.  This workout felt very good and fairly easy.
3:01, 3:03, 3:03, 3:04, 3:02, 3:03, 3:01, 2:58

I got a kick out of looking up my times from last year's training in this entry.  I have come a long way in terms of speed and consistency.  I am happy with all three of these workouts.  Only one more---a 4x400--left before the race!
