Track intervals

Did a warm-up and flexibility drills, then:

3 x 1000m then 400 m with 2 min rest in between. I tried to do the 1000m in 5:30 and the 400 m in 2:12, but ended up with the 1000m in about 5:38-5:40 and the 400 m in 2:13-2:15. It was really pushing to do it that fast - my lungs were burning. But I finished the workout, felt great, and don't feel too tired now, so that's good. It was a good workout. Cooled down and stretched.

Met a nice older gentleman named John at the track today, and he asked me a whole bunch of questions about racewalking. I told him about the Wasatch Walkers, and referred him to the website. Maybe he'll join!

Yep, that's the exact same pace that I'm doing right about now, Tammy! I can only hit 5:30 for 1K on a good day. Right now I'm still around 5:40 to 5:50. Your 400's are right around mine though - 2:13, 2:14. You'd be a great person for me to train with!
