This is the track, isn't it????
I finally got back to the track of a time trial. It's been about 17-18 months and in the interlude I lost my momentum. I had run a 6:18, 1600 meter and a 13:13, 3200 meter. I was on the verge of breaking the 13 minute barrier.
That was a year and half ago. 3 pulled calf muscles ago.
I knew that starting up again would not be pretty but like the proverbial journey it has to begin someplace.
I ran a very easy 25 minutes over to and around De Anza. Then I did a couple of striders.
My goal was to run somewhere in the range between 7 and 7:15. I ran the first two laps in 3:45 and then picked up the last 800 running 7:06.I ran another 13 minutes back home.
I am at least a minute away from where I need to be to have a chance at breaking 13 minutes.
Dimitri and I have decided to start doing our weekly trial runs in January.
I will do something like this.
Set date initial goal for 3200
1600 20 seconds faster than pace
2400 @date pace
3200 Date pace
Set new goal pace
