Lots of Work to Do

Time: 38:12
Distance: 8.39km

W/u: 16:30 for 3.25km
W/o: 100m, 200m, 300m, 400m, 400m, 300m, 200m, 100m all with 100m jog
C/d: 11:46 for 2.32km

There was nothing pretty about the effort this evening at the Marblehead track. My hope was to inject a little pace into the system and see how the body responded. I learned that I have a long way to go until I get back to where I know I'm capable of running. Not to make too many excuses, but tonight's run was pretty windy and cold.

17.2 (31), 35.5 (33), 52.7 (38), 70.0 (38), 70.6 (39), 52.5 (37), 33.6 (38), 15.4

I never felt smooth clicking of 70 second 400m pace which isn't fast. I want to keep doing workouts like this a couple times a week just so that my body gets the feeling of running fast again. Lots of work to do...
