9/4, 9/5 runs - Preparing for another half

9/4: 3.6 miles: 36:05: 9:52 pace
9/5: 2.6 miles: 29:04: 11:06

I'm becoming a sick and twisted individual because I am starting to enjoy speed work. I hated doing it by myself but these track sessions have given me a whole new appreciation. I'm one of the slowest people there but something about the track workout has really energized me.

The workout Wednesday was a ladder: 400, 400, 800, 1600, 800, 400, 400. I wasn't sure how to pace myself and did the first 400 in about 1:48, not fast but it felt good to open it up a little.

Shakeout run Thursday morning was tough, it was about 10 hours since speed work, and legs were pretty heavy. Had planned to get three at least but when the group turned around I didn't fight it. With the half coming up on Sunday I could use the easy day.

Chicago Half Marathon on Sunday, hoping to "officially" break 2:30.
