Back in DC: Soggy Track Workout

Good morning from a very rainy DC! I was up early this morning for a soggy track workout. My track buddies are all hardcore and always show up in the rain, which is good motivation for me to do so, too. :) This morning the coach had us do three 1200’s (3 laps around the track) at a fast clip, with a couple minute break in between each.

Garmin 225 vs. Garmin 910xt GPS Watch Review

You guys – this morning’s sunrise was insane. I was kind of bummed I saw it from the track instead of down on the trail along the water (much better views), but glad I was up and enjoying it at all! This morning’s track workout was straightforward: a 24 minute tempo run building in speed. I ran the whole thing with one of my track buddies so we Continue Reading …
