|Look at that deliciousness.|
So I modified the Yasso 800s today to get in some speed work. By modified, I just mean that I reduced the repeats to 4. I think technically, I'm supposed to repeat it more, but I wanted to go back home and eat lunch while watching How I Met Your Mother.
I suited up (in running clothes) and ran a mile to Beebe Lake, an artificial lake, on campus. And proceeded to run laps around it. I also didn't set my watch for an interval workout beforehand and lapped the watch manually. Hence, the weird 0.51miles distance intervals and more than four minutes of rest, when I started zoning out and forgot to start the next lap.
|I normally suck at speed intervals, because they stress me out. But I actually got it done!|
Since the school track is open only during lunch time, I never use it. Instead, I usually run on a flat stretch of road. But today, I just felt like looping on the uneven terrain of the trail next to the lake.
|A rough estimate of where my intervals might have been. The point is, that it wasn't flat.|
What are some of you guy's favorite speed workouts?
