I started my Monday with 8x400s with a 200 RI. I ran a nice slow mile or so warm up over to the track. I was feeling a little case of the Mondays so I was tired. I got up around 6 AM but did not make it out until almost 8:30! So it was getting hot. I have decided to aim for a 47 min 10k which would put me right in between where I was last year and what my goal is. I followed the 5k chart from the Run Less Run Faster book and that would put me at a 22:30 5k time. Which means I should run my 400's at 1:39. You can see my splits below, my first 400 was at split 3. It was my lap to see how fast I needed to go so that one came in at 1:42 after that I tried my hardest to stay right around 1:39. It was hard to be consistent, something I will need to work on. Oh and after my 400 I walked my 200. I was tired and needed to catch my breath. Time to get me into shape!!
This was me after I got home. Sweatin' hot and ready for some cold water a-sap! They have drinking fountains at the track but as soon as the weather gets hot so does the water. I took a few sips here and there when I walked my 200 but kept thinking about an ice cold glass when I got home.
Since I was jonesin' for something cold I made myself a smoothie.
Aaahhh finally sitting down, enjoying my smoothie and beginning the day with some great blog reading!

Question?!?! I really want to buy some great speed shoes. I was thinking about the Nike Frees but am not sure. Do guys have any suggestions about what your favorite speed shoes are? Not for distance but strictly for speed!
