Ok, I hate this song and I've heard it about 10,000 times too often, but hey, Gerry Rafferty just died so you gotta show a little respect. Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street.
The Wednesday Workout went well for me this week. There was a great turn out this week, 10 Keenyans. I was planning to run 4 x 800 @ 2:52. After the warm up I was surprised to see that Brad, Boj and Clint were all interested in doing the work out. This was the largest group I have ever run a workout with on Wednesdays, I was pretty psyched. Of course, when I told Roma about it later, she had to remind me that one was injured, one was recovering from the flu, and one has had open heart surgery. I can always count on her to put things in perspective. So, anyways, we started out, and the first two rounds went great, 2:52 on the button. Clint pulled out a little on the second, for something like 2:49. Brad seemed like he was tiring a bit, and Boj was running steady. The 3rd was still good for me, 2:54, with Clint turning it on for about 2:42. I started to die on the last round, coming in at 2:58, but I really feel like I ran the whole thing hard and it was my best speed workout for the beginning of my training. It was really great running around town with such a big group afterwards, and Armadillos was great too. Plus with the new $5 burrito night & $2 beers, I'll have to quote from an earlier blog "certainly Armadillo's is, as a matter fact, generally quite fun indeed. It is unquestionably the de facto spot for post run meal and conversation. Really." Plus now it's cheap.
