The Need For Speed

Wednesday, December 15, 2010:

I stepped out onto the Richard Montgomery Track Wednesday, ready to do some 200s. The workout was to be 8x200 meter repeats, with 200 jog between each. It took a little while to warm up as it has been very cold outside. Finally I was ready to start the workout, and hit the first few in 35s but quickly dropped to 33s for all the rest(maybe even a 32 in there-I didn't get the timing that accurate but whatever-I was concentrating on turnover-which was exactly what I wanted to focus on. This workout was a first key ice-breaker for getting into the 5k zone. The 200s were a perfect distance as they were good for working on turnover but did not stress my body since the distance was so short.
Splits: 35, 35, 34, 33, 33, 33, 33, 32
I am thinking 400s next week.
