Another track comparison

Here is another comparison of track work-outs. We ran in a light mist this morning, and it was very humid. John and I were discussing how it always seems like we have a headwind on the back straightaway, but never a tailwind on the front straightaway.

The difference in running fitness from last year to this year are even more obvious in today's workout. The good news is, it seems like most of the hip pain is now gone, so I'll be able to slowly ramp up the running mileage. Then again, 11.5 miles on Tuesday wasn't exactly a slow progression.

Next week we do 4400 again with a little more emphasis on the long stuff, and then some short stuff. The plan is 1600, 1200, and then 4x400. I only have last year's data for next week's track session.

MMB, Looked like a good one. We're having a good mini-camp of adverstiy training in the hills of Al. We did 2 rides in the hills and a track session in between (Lori's first). This a.m. we road in Oak Mtn. Park. The climb is ~ .5 mile with a 13% grade in the middle ;> Used a 42x26 to roll over it. Lori was in 39x23. Outstanding! She's getting her mean on for 3 Gap. Look forward to the track next week. Happy B-Day Maggie.
