Monday night speedwork, woohoo!!! What a nice evening for speed -- a little chill in the air but clear skies. Although, I gotta admit that I was already tired even during the warm-up laps. Let's see, who else showed up: Natalie, Jason, Tracy A., and Tracy C. As a group, we decided to take it a little easy (thanks, guys, for not making me do 800s) so we would have some energy for our races this weekend.
Instead, we decided to do some fun drills on the turf (skips and high-knees). As silly as we probably looked, we really had fun! We did 4 skips and 4 high-knees to the 50 yard line and then we started out workout. That turf is so nice and cushy -- you can really catch some air when you're doing the skips!
For the main workout, we decided that we would do 6x400s. Natalie and I hung out together again and finished each of our 400s right around 1:36 (or was it 1:26? -- I can't remember). Anyway, we felt sufficiently beat up when we were done so we knew we were working hard. It's funny because when she showed up, I said "I'm glad you're here, otherwise I would have slacked off tonight." She said the same. We cooled down with another mile and called it a night.
Highlights of this workout: stretching on the turf, silly drills on the turf (I'm glad I'm at a point in my life where I really don't care if people think I look silly!), Natalie's cute, innocent remarks.
