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.
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.
