Pikermi Training Day 6: Track Workout

Written By: der5er - Aug• 31•10

Today I had a great run.  I felt loose and free, running as fast as I wanted seemed like no chore at all.  The training plan called for:

Run a 2 lap warm-up on the track. Make sure during these two laps you stride on the straight part of the track and jog on the curves.

Following your 2 lap warm-up, run 1 mile with a 400 meter recovery. Repeat 4 times.

Cool down with 10 minutes of light jogging.

I don’t have a track close enough for a true track workout, so I’ve found a couple of streets just across the way that make a 3/4 mile loop with only about 30 feet change in elevation.  This is longer than a track, but I’ve found it to be less boring.

I ran almost 6 miles in 51 minutes.  That’s pretty fast for me, knocking out an 8:32 average pace.  All of my intervals were at about 8 minute pace, so I’m feeling really good with that.

Here’s today’s map (if you don’t see it, click here):

August stats:

  • 9 Runs
  • 51.3 total miles
  • 53:30 total time
  • 9:15/mi average pace.
