Speed Tuesdays!

Speed Tuesdays are back!

Leah gave me my workout yesterday. 4X800s at 3:50, 3:45, 3:40, 3:35. I ran 2 miles warm-up on the treadmill today at 6.0mph, then did 4X800 with a 400 rest jog/walk in between. Then a 1/2 mile cooldown. 5.5 miles in 53:45.

First 800: 3:38 (oops, not quite 3:50)
Second 800: 3:42 (a little closer to 3:45)
Third 800: 3:38 (close to 3:40)
Fourth 800: 3:37

I felt pretty strong, but still had the sniffles and had to blow my nose a lot. I can't wait until I can actually run on the indoor track with the running group. Baby steps. I want to be able to run 10 miles outside easily before I show up to the new group (yes, I still haven't met them


  1. P.S. In order to hit the times, you might want to plan out the speed you have to be at on the treadmill. I.E. 3:45 is 8.0.
