Fabulous. Finally a normal, no-nonsense workout. No ups or downs or thoughts of quitting. Just consistent, low-key, no drama running.
I don’t think I’d ever done this workout before. 2×2000, 3×1000, 4×400 with each subsequent set 2 seconds faster per 400 than the previous set. There was some confusion throughout about pace, number, groups but it all worked out to the following:
2000s: 7.42, 7.36
1000s: 3.43, 3.43, 3.38
400s: 1.21, 1.19, 1.15, 1.13
Wow, looking at it now I see that’s more than 8K of speed work. It was hard, but didn’t seem overly ambitious at the time. It was long though, as many people dropped out (due to time) before finishing all of the sets. And those 2000s just went on and on and on. By the time we ran the 400s, it felt like a 40 yard dash.
Andre did his sub-20 minute 5K. Yay Andre!
My friend is a political junkie. His wife not so much. But she said she would watch election returns with him if he made some charts to explain the issues, what was going on, etc. She didn’t think he would do it. He did. He made charts. Hahahaha.
I kind of miss riding my bike. Need to get back to that.
I like my kids.
