I think the 400 in 75 will be cake, but the 800 in sub 3 minutes may be a challenge.</p> Sun, 18 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Feb 16, 2018 <p>&quot;Long&quot; intervals in the neighborhood - already feeling considerably better but not quite like a runner yet.</p> Fri, 16 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Feb 15, 2018 <p>Short intervals in the neighborhood and core, pushups, squats/lunges</p> Thu, 15 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Feb 13, 2018 <p>Mile warmup, 4x1 min on and 2 min off - goal 800 meter pace (~6 flat mile pace) - mile cooldown back to hous.&nbsp; Finally unboxed my christmas present Forerunner 35 - functional interval feature, but I need to learn how to show pace during workout, if possible.&nbsp; Reviewing the activity online shows me all over the place from 5:35 to 6:15 on the intervals.</p> Tue, 13 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Feb 12, 2018 <p>Mile warmup to my neighborhood half mile workout loop - 4x120 at 400 goal pace - 1.5 back to the house.</p> Mon, 12 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Feb 10, 2018 <p>Three miles on the trails with the middle mile consisting of 4x1minute at goal 800 pace with full recovery&nbsp;walk - quite challenging at this point in my one month training schedule... feeling not at all like a runner physically, but loving life back out there</p> Sat, 10 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Feb 09, 2018 <p>1.5 warmup then 4x120 at goal 400m pace ish - 1.5 back to the house.&nbsp; Bit of stretching, pushups, planks, squats</p> Fri, 09 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Feb 07, 2018 <p>Wow - my profile is still here...</p> <p>Three easy miles with 4x120m striders in the middle.&nbsp; Less than a month until local Senior Games track meet.&nbsp; Plan on running the 400 and 800 to qualify for the State games in December.&nbsp; Should make it no problem with a 75 in the 400 and sub 3 in 800.&nbsp; Will be in much better shape by December to hopefully go sub 65 and sub 2:35 to qualify for next summer&#39;s National Games in Albuquerque.&nbsp; We&#39;ll see.</p> Wed, 07 Feb 2018 07:00:00
