On speed!

I am so full of energy this morning, it's not even funny! I even only had half a cup of coffee and nothing to eat before my track workout. The taper is finally working! :)

I headed out the door at 5:45AM to go to my last track workout before SD. I wasn't sure what I would be doing. I knew I wouldn't be doing the full workout and thought I'd have some sort of 800m repeats at pace. Nope. I was just to do the first half of the workout and to keep my pace under control (aka don't try to beat the times). Oops! I felt as though I was relaxed. Legs felt GREAT!!! Breathing got a little heavy, but not out of control. It's a good thing that I was only allowed to run half of the workout because I wouldn't have been able to control myself.

Workout:

1200 400 400 400 1200 400 400 400 opt. 1600

Jaime's Workout: 1200 400 400 400 - that's it!

I did warm up with three laps and cooled down with two laps - so, I got in a total of 2.75 miles for the day! :)

Expected times: 1200 in 5:12 and 400's in 1:40

My times: 4:59, 91, 91, 91

Oh! I got a free starbucks card in the mail since my birthday is Sunday. So, I think I may pick up a drink on my way to work. That's all I need ... a little more caffeine to go with this energy! AHHHHH ... loving life.

AND - Coach's race plan for me. Stick with the 3:40 pace group and let them do the work. No matter how great I feel, he doesn't want me to even think about leaving them until after mile 18. He's a smart guy. I hope I listen to him!!

Only 4 days until the race. The countdown has begun. :)
