Back to the Track-

It has been a while since I have made it to the track....what with the bum heel and all; I really needed to know how will it respond to speed work.....
A sad truth?....if you don't do speed work regularly you lose it! Remember the "s.a.i.d. principle" I had a simple, little, easy, workout planned...one mile warm-up, 4x400 with a 400 rest in between each one, cool down to 30 minutes total time. I made it but the speed sessions showed my lack of training, 1:53, 1:55, 1:57, 2:00, were the splits in that order....note the rapid decline!
My goal is to focus on the shorter races for a while thus minimizing the weekly distance needs maximizing healing for the heel....I want to train for a marathon....bad!
I think I have a goal race in mind: "We're bookn' it 5K" This gives me 10 weeks to train. At least I've a goal and a little hope!
Finished with a good week-179 minutes of running! Peace! Happy fourth!
