Speedwork Sucks

Probably my absolute worst feeling run in a very long time. Days like today are the reason I have a love/hate relationship with running. Speedwork was on the schedule yesterday; however I couldn't get to it yesterday because I had to drive up to Madison, WI and back in one day. Umm 7 hours in the car and 4 1/2 hours sitting at a desk really not what I call a good time. My hips and back were throbbing from all the sitting! Anyways, it was a nice cool day today so I thought it would be a great day to get back into speedwork. Let's just say it's been awhile and although I remember really hating this part of training I had blocked out how horrible it really was for me. I seriously thought I was going to puke up my orange I had just eaten for lunch. I ended up not being able to complete the 2nd 1600 and broke it down to a 2 x 800 with 2 x400 jogs (walks). Everything felt off. Legs, lungs, head, everything. I guess I shouldn't have expected much it being the first speedwork session in a very long time. At least I finished and met the times I was shooting for so that is definitely something!!! AND I feel better an hour or so post run. Maybe it wasn't all that bad...

Alright I am off to obsess over my new facebook account. Yet another thing to keep me from working (and cleaning the house).

Nice job getting through the speed workout. There is always a sense of accomplishment after completing a tough workout.

That's why they call it speedWORK. If it was easy, they would call it speedshopping, or speednapping. Maybe speednacho-eating. Good job.

I'm still trying to get back in to distances after my time off here... seems like either your speed or your distance goes really well and the other gets tough for awhile.. eventually it all evens out right... yeah right.

Don't worry Jamie. First speedwork session after a layoff always suck. In fact, if it doesn't suck, you didn't do it right.

It'll get better. At least you got through it, suckage and all. Good job!
