I ran my first speed lap (400 m/0.25 mi) at a 7:30 pace tonight. Jigga whaaaat?
It felt AMAZING to run that fast. I was tearin’ up that track! Sadly I couldn’t hit that pace for the other four speed laps.
I did the rest at about 8:30, and the last one at 9:00 or so (with a slow 200 m recovery between each lap), then did seven more laps for total of 4 miles in 38 minutes.
Oh, man. LOVE track nights with the team. Next time I’ll try to do a lap at 7:00. Vomit pace!
