Track Tuesday 7

I'm pairing up with Denise at Run DMT to bring you a weekly thread where you can brag, show off, cry or celebrate your weekly  (or whenever it is) speed workout. Whether it's Monday, Tuesday, or never, you can link up (at the bottom) and tell us all about your session!
Today's scheduled doozy was a 10 x 400 track workout at 5K pace - do-able. With time looming until Surf City, I really want to make these count to the best of my abilities. However, I also should have known better given this is my first speedwork since before Christmas, really, and first post-sickness. Yeah, I don't think about such things. I just wanted to run!

Today's workout turned into a 5 x 400m session, which I'm not stoked about, but moderately satisfied with. If I can at least stick with speedwork through these next few weeks of tapering, then I'll consider myself happy and knowing that I at least carried out the training plan. 

My work outs usually go as such: 400/800 m warm up, 400 repeats, 400/800 cool down. Today turned into a 800 m warm up, 5 x 400, and 400 cool down. 400 m splits at 1:58, 1:53, 1:55, 1:56, 1:58 and 400 m cool down. Decent for the 5, at least, so I'll call that a victory. I also headed down cool down on the bike for 10 minutes to end the morning.

Do you do regular speedwork as part of a training plan? Did you this week? Link it up! If you post on Twitter, don't forget to use #TrackTuesday too!

And feel free to add the button to your site and entry, too!
