Track Tuesday

Posted on

Track Tuesdays are back!  And I’m pretty excited about it.  While I love the long runs on Saturdays I think the main reason I’m doing DTP again is for Track Tuesdays.  I feel like I get the most coaching at the track and I’m always challenged by the workouts.  I’m slowly learning how to not start too fast so that I can get through the entire workout without crashing and burning.

Not during Tuesday Track...from a race...but it's the same track!

I’m really trying hard with the fueling right now.  I still have time before I feel like I need to get serious about my training so I’m willing to try different things.  On Tuesday, I had a spoonful of peanut butter and a cup of nuun about an hour and a half before track.  This seemed to work well.  Even when I picked up the pace I didn’t have any issues.  I will try this a few more times but this might also work before long runs.

Overall my workout was great.  I decided not to program my watch for specific paces and to just go out and see what I could do and how I felt…..and I felt good.  I was happy with my paces and they were surprisingly consistent which is something I have struggled with in the past.  I’m really looking forward to focusing on speed and getting a little bit faster this summer since I won’t be doing any insanely long runs.

    That’s great to hear that you’re back on the track and excited about it! I love it when I hit my intervals consistently and right on the pace I’m aiming for. Isn’t it a fantastic feeling to know that you left it all on the track after a tough workout?

      Best feeling – I’ve really missed hard workouts and I’m ready to ramp it up again.
