Last night's track workout was a 'good' one ('good' meaning I know it is helping to whack me into shape - not to suggest I enjoyed it). We had 10 60 second hill repeats followed by 6 2:30 progressive pick ups.
After 10 hill repeats I envisioned I wouldn't be able to muster these progressive pick ups but just like all of FB's other workouts, I was in fact able to do the entire workout. The best thing about speed work is doing it at the Cove with the Going the Distance running friends - doing these workouts alone can be downright torturous but having someone share and motivate you through these workouts is invaluable.
I know last night pushed me more towards where I ultimately want to be.
