03/23/2017 Speedwork, 8X 400 meters, done

As I had prioritized, I completed my first speedwork session in a long time today.  I ran a warm up jog of about 3/4 of a mile and proceeded into a session of 8X 400 meter repeats with 400 meter jog recoveries in between.  My times in the 400's went from the 1:31-3:32 range in the beginning, down to 1:27 in repeats number 6 and 7.  I finished up my last 400 in a fastest time of the day at 1:26.

I also am happy to report that my 400 meters was on the higher side, probably closer to .26 miles than .25, the stretch of road I used and my watch are close to .25, but I err on the longer side when I run them out.

I'm not sure what I would have felt like today had I run the 8 miles yesterday, but I know that I felt good to go from my first step today.  Maybe going with 6 miles yesterday paid off, maybe not.

Since Sunday, I have run 26 miles, with only a 5 miler left tomorrow.  It will be a strong week overall, and a well deserved rest weekend before I get back into it on Monday.
