I had an orthodontist appointment today, so I came late to do the speed. I did a mile and a half warmup to the track, then a mile of speed changes. Then everyone else finished their workout, so I was on my own. 12 200s. Split them up into 3 sets of 4.
I was in kind of a bad mood to begin with. Maybe not so great to have while doing speed. The first set was alright, hit 35, 34, 38, 37. Towards the end there I started to crash mentally, and it went downhill from there.
2nd set was the worst. I don't know what I hit because Bill never read me my times, but I am grateful because if he did I would have just crashed mentally even more. I had a hard time staying positive. My legs were killing me, and I couldn't breathe or catch my breath like I normally do. But I think I know what the problem was now.
3rd set Bill told me I didn't have to do, but then I felt guilty not doing the full workout, so I did it. I think the first one was a 35-36ish, then from there on I don't know them. except for the last one. Bill told me I had to hit 37 or I would have to do it again, so I hit 36-37ish. But yeah, very tough workout mentally. It doesn't seem like a hard workout, but I was dying with no one there to push me, and in the heat. For a minute there I had really wished I hadn't come and had just done a long run or even a little bit of fartlek, but now looking back at it, I am glad I did it.
Then I did 2 grass laps cool down.
I made state in track as a freshman!!! :) (okay, well not in the event I wanted, but I still made it!!)
