The weekly track workout was on the schedule today and I officially met Shannon Jacobs, the guy that's kind enough to organize and run these track workouts week in week out. There were about 15 people attending the session today, including my co-worker friend David Scarlett and his daughter. Hopefully they can make it out a few times this summer. We met at 6PM at the Grissom High School track. This was only my second track workout...ever. Shannon had come up with a great Fartlek (Swedish word for "speed play") workout. We would warm up for 1 mile or 4 laps, followed by 3 minutes at just under 5K pace with 1 minute recovery jogs until we completed about 12 laps or 3 miles, followed by a 1 mile cool-down. I was shooting for a 6:30 minute per mile pace and was able to stay under or just around that pace for the most part. It was a great workout and a nice way to get in my first two-a-day of this training cycle.
