800's=Cold and Windy

Last night Tyler had a baseball game at 4; they tied. I cheered. Troy had practice at 6, dropped him off, brought Tyler to baseball practice 2, dropped him off.

Headed to the track. It was WINDY and COLD again, just like last Thursday. Only last night it was 43F with a 45 mph wind! BRRRR!

I actually though about pitching the 800's because of the wind. But who doesn't run because it is too windy outside?

So it looked like this: 1 mile warm up; then 6 800's: 1) 3:35, 2: 3:40, 3: 3:31, 4: 3:40, 5: 3:33 and 6: 3:38 with a 2 mile cool down. I thought the wind and the 15 freaking fast miles the night before might ruin the speed. The speed was still there :)

Superior 50K is next Saturday. Hopefully it is dry. Cold is fine, but dry would be great.

Tomorrow we have Twins tickets. Think they can pull out a win against the White Sox?? Now that'd be quite a game.........

Congratulations on the speed gains Julie. I have to follow your lead and get to the track because I am a slowpoke. 800's .... ugh.

Running is great just in itself, but let's face it, when you're slow you feel like you get a mini-DNF.
