>Speed is good for the legs, and good for the mind

>I did my first track workout yesterday….in about a year and a half. I used to do these probably twice a week during college and high school. Once I graduated and controlled my own training schedule, I didn’t seem as excited for this and brushed them off to the side. But one thing I miss is 200’s. It was a beautiful 80 degree day, something I am not used to, at least not since August.

We got 6 200’s in and it felt great. My thighs and calves were burning, but it is such a great feeling getting the speed workouts done. Even though I don’t get the mileage in, I know I worked hard. Speed workouts are also a great way to get your mind off anything. I honestly don’t think of anything while I’m sprinting. Compared to other days when I have miles of things to think about. These next few days will be runs in 2 or three miles. Then comes Sunday!
