- It's over. I'm officially ending my relationship (or lack there of) with the track. Speedwork is officially being struck from my training plan. I've tried repeatedly to give it a fair chance but it's just not working out. Yes I know it makes you faster but is it worth this pain? As far as I'm concerned... not anymore. I've given it so many chances, taken it back one to many times... I do not deserve the pain and suffering it causes me. That being said I will now lace my Tempo Runs on Thursdays with Fartlek's (not to be confused with Fartnik's as I told B.o.B yesterday). I tried this last week and I did so much better than I ever have at the track. Plus there was no lingering pain after. While some of you may have a special relationship with speedwork, alas I can not say the same about our abusive relationship. I mean look at what it's done to me, behold the wonder of the Office Mullet: (Oh yes I DID!)
(Excuse the headless horsewoman that I am, I didn't have the heart to ask coworker to take another one considering the sillyness of the request to begin with...)
Saturday's Long Run calls for the second 18 miler of the training plan.... Lazy Runner has decided that we shall tackle his old stomping grounds and relive his glory days of running for UCF by hitting the campus and trails. Should be interesting with a 4am start... wonder if we'll run in to any drunkards still out and about?!?!
