Oh man, my first Seattle Running Club track workout in at least five months! Good times.
The workout called for 6-8 x 1000 m (400 m easy jog between efforts) and I managed to run six. I started out with Herbert Sitz who I used to be pretty evenly matched with last summer but that was not the case tonight, he left me behind each time and each time the gap got bigger and bigger. I not only started the first few intervals too fast and faded by the end of each effort, it also felt like I got progressively slower times for each effort even though I didn't use a watch.
On the upside I did manage six efforts! And my sartorius/hip didn't flare up which was huge as intervals is how I injured myself last year. It also felt good running to and from the track.
I'll be back and I'll get better. These workouts are awesome as I just don't run fast on my own. Not like this anyway.
In spite of going to the bathroom about 30 minuets before I left the house I had to piss like mad one mile from home. So I did something I have never done before... I found a hedge that was not illuminated by street lights or a motion activated porch light, faced the bushes and relieved myself. I was dying!
