The 2008 USA Masters Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held August 7-10 at Spokane Falls Community College in Spokane, Washington. The meet features athletes ranging in age from 30-95+ in a display of speed, strength, and endurance for all ages. Track events range from 100 meters to 10,000 meters, while field events include the full range of jumps and throws. --USA Track and Field
I entered the 5,000 and 10,000 meters, meaning that focus will be on track interval training the next couple of weeks. Today I did 6 x 800 in 2:47-2:49 with 2:40 recovery. It's been a couple of weeks now since I've done a quality track workout so I felt a little flat out there today. I needed the extra recovery time between reps.
My goal is simple- get as close to 17:00 as possible in the 5K. That's 5:29 per mile, or 82 second 400s, 2:44 800s. Based on today's workout I should be looking at 17:30, but I am hoping to knock those average times down. I might be feeling the effects of the 1/2 Monty on Saturday- my legs were pretty beat up Sunday morning.
Stay tuned for daily updates!
