So it's Tuesday, which means Tuesday night at the track. I really have decided it's better for me to go early. Yes, I miss out on the team workouts but if I do that, we don't start til 8pm, I don't get home til almost 10 and I am wired. So my routine now is to run up there (2.5 miles, great warm up) and do the work outs. I'm done by 8pm.
Tonight was 8x 400 with 2 minutes active recovery then 4x200.
1:44, 1:40, 1:40, 1:44, 1:40, 1:42, 1:40, 1:39
44, 44, 43, 42
In other news, I got word today my HS XC coach died suddenly over the weekend. Bob Kiessling was his name and he coached for years all over South Jersey. He was my first real running coach. I remember him talking about running marathons my freshman year. I thought no way could I ever do that. Now I've done 10. Those of us who ran as kids all remember our coaches and the impact they've had on us. Mr. K is no exception to this. He will be missed by many.
