Getting Stronger - Good Track Workout

2 mile wu
6x100 striders
3x200(50) [200]
3x200(100) [200]
3x200(50) [200]

Total: 6.375
Wind: NE at 12 mph
Humidity: 83%
course: Wheaton College track

I wish I took notes. That (above) might be the workout spot-on, or off. Either way, I think that's what we did. It'll do unless someone tells me otherwise.

I ran hard, felt strong, and overall, had a good workout. Ran the 200s as fast as 44-45 and the 800s as fast as 3:34. Neither were all-out efforts, nor intended to be.

Ran the 800s around 7:08-7:15 mile pace. I'm improving. The distance between a 20:00 5K and today is getting smaller, so I am encouraged. I felt dogged toward the end, but time will resolve that as I put in good miles.

Finally kept up with a few people. My form is getting better, but Jim reminded me to keep my hands at my pocket during arm swing. It's the most miles I have run yet, but, in this way, is not the same as a long galloping run.

To celebrate, I'm eating Chocolate Chunk Dark Chocolate Nantucket Crispy Cookies, washed down with Welch's Grape Juice with Fiber. They're very good. Try 'em.
