Wednesday 400s

With even shorter races coming up, I tried running 400s for speedwork this week. On a fairly warm and humid evening, 76°F, I was hoping the 400s would be easier than the 800s or mile repeats I've doing lately. The workout was 8x400/200recoveries; I ended up with:
81.7, 78.9, 78.6, 76.6, 78.8, 79.3, 78.2, and 76.2

I thought this was a pretty tough workout until I read Lance's blog. Wow! No wonder why they're smoking me in all of the Spring races.

Your workout is every bit as tough as ours for one reason. You're doing it alone. I have two great guys (or at least one) every week out there working as a team to get the work out done. Doing 400s alone is herculean.
