Training Log - Thursday, July 12, 2012 (Part 2)

Second workout of the day was definitely a fun one. Jason graced us with his presence as well;-) The "Need For Speed" group met at the Grissom High School Track at 6PM tonight as every Thursday night. Shannon had come up with another great speed workout. 12x 400m intervals with 1 minute recoveries preceded and followed by a 1 mile warm up and cool down, respectively.

While 5K pace was the target, I planned to drop the pace to below 6 minute per mile. I had hoped to keep sub 6 min pace with the goal to drop the pace closer to 5:30-5:45 min pace for the last couple of repeats. I finished the final lap in 5:13 minute per mile pace, not too shabby. Jason was kind enough to run with me, making the recovery jogs much more entertaining than usual. Of course, chatting the entire minute of recovery also made it feel a lot shorter. Great peeps, great workout, thanks everyone and especially Shannon for continuing to keep it challenging.
