Well today was a comedy of errors. I went to Redmond HS to do my track workout out and as I was getting dressed realized I forgot my racing flats which I always run my speed workouts in.
To make matters worse, I forgot socks as well. I have never run without socks. i know many do, but not me. I thought about waiting until I got home to run but the rain and wind were on their way so i wanted to get it done. As I laced up my shoes (without socks) I noticed a pair of my son's socks under my seat.
I tried them on and they were just big enough to creep over my heel. Not great but better than nothing.
The workout was short but tough, especially since my efforts to avoid the wind did not work out so well.
2x1.5M@7:20 (4:52 pace)with a 3 minute rest in between.
First one came in at 5:22. Not bad all things considered but I was pretty spent. the wind was coming down the straightaway rather than the turn whic I hate. Oh well. 3 minutes of jogging later, I was back for the second and final repeat. First 800 I was 5 seconds slow. Ugh. But I hung in there and finished in 7:27 which means I held on to the correct pace for the final four laps. Small victories.
