A few cobwebs

Several weeks of ramping up mileage made this morning's speed workout a toughie. Intervals on the track are a test of your fitness, focus, and guts.

In terms of fitness, most of the intervals were in my pace zone (800s around 3:47). At times, I lost my focus and could feel myself accelerating and decelerating during the laps around the track--even though my pace should have been fairly constant. My final two intervals were my fastest, so that means I had the guts to work harder and tough it out. And, of course, the gutsiest thing is getting out there because waking up, lacing up, and running up to the track takes, well, huevos!
