Post Spring Training

I've been toying with speed work and having a blast! Who knew that 200's could be so much fun. I love the feeling of controlled abandon that my recent trips to the track have given me. Those 200 meters of all out flying are, to me, akin to riding a roller coaster. I feel free and FAST! And I love the reminder (via little beep from my garmin) that it's time to put on the breaks for a couple hundred meters, catch my breath, re-fuel my muscles.
I've spent almost two years working on my distance, slowly gaining mileage, carefully adding intensity.......slow, sure, steady, careful.....
Now finally, once a week, I get to go!

  1. I like that speed workouts seem to go by so quickly. All you have to think about is the set you are currently doing. So glad you are enjoying it!
