Track Tuesday 11

My Track Tuesdays have become any day but Tuesdays as of lately - Wednesday, Thursday, Tuesday. Who needs a real schedule, anyway?
This week I joined our coach Al at his regular Tuesday clinic, only because Chandler wouldn't be with me this week and he knew I'd do better in a group (glad he catches on fast!). So at the bright, shining hour of 5:30 am, I was on the track with his regulars. Mind you, these were the same folks who blasted past me a few weeks ago, but also who therefore are the ones that push me to the max - and to what I know I am capable of.

Today's work out was 400 repeats, number varying per our abilities. Al set me up for 8 x 400s, which is a push I haven't done in awhile. I don't know if it was the frustration from Sunday's race coming out in me, but I kicked off on a great start with my first two laps at 1:49 and 1:50. It was then I realized that maybe I can gauge myself better than I thought (I also had a great anchor and great rabbit to chase that I used to pace myself). But check these suckers out! 
I don't know what the Split 2 is all about. Haha.
My 400 splits have never been this consistent, ever, and look! The last repeat was the fastest?! Who am I? Cooled down with 1 easy mile and called it a morning. What a great way to start my Tuesday and an even better motivation and confidence booster going into the half marathon this week!

  1. Awesome! You are getting speedy!!I love it!

    1. I love it too! I think the speedy was always in me, it's more the consistency that I'm trying to work on. Regardless, loving it!

  2. I've been reading your blog since the beginning (I like reading through journeys, it's inspiring, what can I say? =P) and I was just wondering what watch you have that lets you set your laps to be less than a mile. Thanks!
