This past Tuesday and Saturday are two BIG days in my comeback. They were two workouts that not only tested me but also gave me tons of confidence.
The first workout was this past Tuesday and we had 7x400 with little rest on the menu. The fact that until this point I could only run 2-3 miles with a bit of walking in between really scared me and made me doubt my ability to do well during this workout. I don’t think I would have done this without my team. Being in a little pack really helped me just forget about everything and focus on staying with them and clicking off every 400. I was supposed to stay around 7:20 - 7:30 pace but if I felt good I could take off and as you can tell from my splits are below I felt pretty damn good.
The second workout of the week with the team was longer. We had a decent 1.5 mile warm up and then 1,200m, 800m, 400m, 800m, 1,200m, with 400m rest in between. I still can’t believe the paces I was hitting (below) especially after being gassed from that warm up.
- 1,200m: 6’53”
- 800m: 7’23”
- 400m: 6’51”
- 800m: 7’13”
- 1,200: 7’24”
I’m coming back and I can’t wait to race again!
