Running Round and Round and Round

Track day! Just the words get me tired. This was the second week that I've run with my track club. And after two weeks I can totally see why. Something about hard running makes it not so bad when a bunch of other people are cursing as well!

The damage - 2 mile warm up, 1 X 1200, 4 X 800, 1 mile warm down. Including recovery I put in 6 miles last night. Average pace 9:38 (including warm up, warm down, and recovery). I checked out time at greater than 90% MHR - 12.1 minutes. Man - no wonder I'm tired today!

Also - sorry for the late post today. This thing called work keeps getting in the way. On tap for today - 4 recovery miles.


  1. Keep up the great work, Glenn! That track running is hard stuff. Way to go!

  2. *Shudder* 4 x 800 makes me want to puke just reading it. Way to go!

  3. AS a new runner, I just have to say that your "boring" posts about 4 mile recovery runs totally inspired me for my last 90 second interval today (total beginner, doing the Couch to 5K). I kept thinking of how 4 miles is *boring* to you--oddly enough, I found that inspiring and kept telling myself that if a "fat guy" can get as far as you, then a "fat chick" can totally finish the last 90 second interval. Thanks.

  4. Great job doing your track running. Especially since you go knowing how tough it's going to be.
