Back on (the) Track

Yesterday I got in another track workout.  Does anyone else get a little nervous before doing these?  Kind of like before a race?  I think it’s because I know it’s going to hurt.

Anyway, I did some 400’s with a 200 jog in between each one.  I’ve been running each between 80-90 seconds.  Granted, I’m not going 100% on these repeats, but still that’s a far cry from high school when I ran them averaging around 55 seconds per.  Ahh well, that’s the sweet bird of youth for you.

Anyone want to go to Prom with me?

Maybe if I stay consistent with my track workouts, I’ll start creepin my times back down towards my high school self.  Anywhoodle, it was super windy again.  Sustained 20mph winds with gusts a lot stronger.  So half the track I was running straight into a wind wall.

The flag is holding on for dear life.

After I finished my 400’s, I decided to reward myself.  Here’s how:  I ran two more laps, jogging the 200 into the wind, and then sprinting the 200 with the wind at my back.  Some might call this cheating, but it was my reward, and it felt good to go short and fast!!!

Hello 400, we meet again.

Hello 400, we meet again.

How bout you?  Anyone else ever reward themselves after a tough workout with a little ‘cheating’ run?  Do you ever compare your olden days times with current ones?  Anyone else a lil nervous before track work?
