Then today, the stars aligned and Meg and I could both go to track practice with the Team. Plus, it's time in our training schedule to get some speed work in. Yeeeeow!! It was only 4 miles total (1 mile warm-up, 8x400, and a mile cool-down), and a workout I've done dozens of times. But, wow. That's gonna hurt in the morning. I did each 400 anywhere between 1:37 and 1:48 (I think). According to a post from last May, I'm right on pace with early speed work from last year. So, woohoo for that! Meg killed it tonight. She tore it up.
Conversation when I got home:
Mr. Joanna: "Did you have fun?"
Me: "Fun? No."
Mr. Joanna: "Well, are you glad you went?"
That pretty well sums up speed work. It's not fun (although the camaraderie is), but man is it productive.
77.0 + 3.7 + 4.0 = 84.7 miles
