When I got home last night, I somehow got stuck in a mudhole right in the middle of my yard....after finally getting out, 45 minutes later, I didn't feel like the "race pace" 3 miler I had planned for my speed workout tonight.
So I dragged myself down to the treadmill for a simple training run.......after a little warmup I felt good and ended up doing intervals. I mixed it up with 200s, 400s, and 800s all with a kick at the end. did 11 intervals ......low and behold I accomplished a speed workout! I spun off a short cooldown and left feeling pretty happy with the workout.
Sometimes you just have to start by putting one foot in front of the other and see what happens.
