Or at least my own version of it. Flo Jo I'm not. Yet. This morning was the first speed training session. What exactly is a speed training session? Typically you jog a 1 mile warm-up at your local high school track (for the softer surface). Then you run a series of speed intervals, followed by a 1 mile cool down. The idea is that these intervals help you increase your overall endurance and eventually train your body to run faster. Yep.
Since today was the first, of what will be many gradually increasing intervals, we did 8 repeats of 30 seconds "fast" and 30 seconds "normal". I say that in "" because my version of speed is obviously different from others, since I have a hard green shell on my back, but that's okay. It was speedy for me.
