Ok. I am starting to love speedwork. I mean, really, really love it. It’s quick, yet painful but I am finding that it’s getting easier. I am still sticking to the treadmill for this training because it’s too dark out by the time I can begin it.
Tonight, I ran 12 quarter-mile repeats with a tenth of a mile recovery in between. I started at 7.5mph and adjusted up one-tenth of a mile until I hit 8mph and then started again at 7.5. I felt a lot stronger than I have in the past and found that it was not as grueling as it has been previously. I am going to have begin at higher speeds and this is pretty cool coming from the girl who used to hate speedwork.
