Training Update

My weekly training sessions with folks from the West Penn Track Club have been really helpful. Yesterday evening, I did something that there’s no way I could have done before training with them. I ran two miles’ worth of 400 meter intervals at an average pace of 7:00! If I keep this up, odds are good that I’ll be able to run the Pittsylvania Mile in under 7:30.

In other training news, I ran 10K with Edey today and got her to run a personal record for both that distance (49:34) and the split time (28:50). That’s about an 8:00 pace. I definitely didn’t run the first half as fast as I could have because I didn’t want to leave Edey behind. I figure I could have shaved a minute or two off had I been going full speed. I’m hoping to be able to run the Father’s Day 10K in 45 minutes or less.

    you forgot to mention that i kicked your butt for a good portion of the second half. you did beat me in the end, though. had you run full tilt first half, who knows how much i would have kicked your butt second half. you might not have had much left 😉
