Speedwork Eek!

My idea of speedwork has always been, well HIIT. I'm a gym girl so HIIT is what comes to mind. Today I decided to try some repeats on the track.

Yep, I'm new(er) to this game.

800m warm up
brief stretch sesh
5x800 @ 4:00, 4:08, 4:07, 4:06, 4:08 with 400m recoveries
800m cool down
stretch sesh

Does that make sense to anyone?!

Anyway, I run around a 10min/mile for my long runs and was aiming at breaking down a 9min/mile for my speedwork. Turns out it was closer to an 8min/mile. I'm happy. I'm also tired.

Going home to frost Goose's sugar free applesauce cake for his birthday!!


  1. hey stranger! I miss you! I just finally logged into my google reader and there you were!!

    How are you... I see you seem well! Are you doing a marathon of some sort? You are looking great!

  2. nice pace on the interval training!

  3. Makes perfect sense. Also pretty consistent which easy to do on long runs but takes practice fore speed-work. Big-Up sugar free applesauce (with extra sugar).
