Track Attack!!

Better than a heart attack although I probably should of had one today! I headed out to the local track around 12:30 this afternoon. With the humidity and heat both high I really was asking for it! I did manage to get the workout in but man alive! I got hot!
Two others were out on the track...young people...20ish, doing sprinting drills. This weather will kill you or make you stronger...as I was driving home I remembered why I went the track early!!!
A mile warm-up then 4x400 with a 400 rest interval..here are the splits: 1:46, 1:54, 1:59, 1:56. Half way through the second 400 I really wanted to change the work-out! I was thinking about doing 200's! However; I stuck it out and finished the workout. My goal is to train for a 5K. Try to run strong and healthy and allow the achilles to heal. I do have my sights set on a possible marathon, though. Rest tomorrow and another week begins! Hills for Monday!!!
Have a great Sunday, Peace!!

12:30 in the afternoon? Wow, you're a brave guy! I vote it's making you stronger :). Nice times on the 400's...way to stick with the longer distance!! :)

Those 400s will definitely get you a speedy 5K. Great work!
