I was planning on my mid-week speed workout to be on Wednesday, but with the weather forecast for Wednesday being what it is, I thought I better sneak it in today. I managed to beat the nasty weather by about 30 minutes. Calm winds, cloudy skies and relatively mild at 52. Degrees. 30 minutes after my workout, it was 34 degrees and snowing at my house. I'm so done, but at least I managed to get my workout in prior to that mess.
The workout was 8x1000m. These are always tough. The target was to alternate between 3:03s and 3:06s with 90 seconds rest. My times wound up being:
3:04; 3:02; 3:04; 3:02; 3:02; 3:03; 3:04; 3:02. The 7th one was the hardest as the lactic acid built up and the fact that I hadn’t had anything to eat since breakfast was catching up to me.
