My third track workout in this training cycle...well, ever, really. Only 5 or 6 runners showed up at the Grissom High School track tonight to enjoy* (*Shannon speak for "suffer") a good speed workout. Shannon Jacobs prepped a workout of a 1 mile warm up followed by 3x 800m repeats at 5K pace with 1 minute recoveries followed by one 1200m repeat at 5K pace before a 1 mile cool down. This was actually shorter than the original workout he had planned for us, but all of us appreciated the adjustment since it was extremely hot and humid. I did truly enjoy the workout and I am looking forward to next week's session. Hopefully, the addition of track workouts will not only help me with my 100 mile training, but also help me permanently move under the 20 minute mark for the 5K distance.
