5:00am Fun on the Track! – 10 x 500m with 300m Recovery

Yes, this is a recovery week.  As I mentioned yesterday that does not mean no quality work.  Today Coach Johnny King Marino had 10 x 500m with 300m recovery as the workout.  The workout was designed for first 400m set at 10K pace but the last 100m was quicker.   Boston Pete was the only one to join me at the track but as he is still recovering from Boston he did not run all 10 repeats.  We alternated for the first 4 and then Pete took off the 5th.  Pete jumped back in for the 6th and then I ran the 9th and 10th alone.  This was clearly not a tough workout, as a matter of fact if was tough to not go significantly faster.  One of those workouts where one needs to trust the coach.    Hopefully this week will keep me on track for the Maccabi Games yet allow me to feel good for the Broad Street Run May 5th.

5am is a tough time to get going.  It means I have to get up at 4:15am but once the workout is done it is a great way to start the day.     That said tomorrow I will be happy to start my run at 6:00am instead.  Until then….
