Wednesday: 8 miles at marathon pace - 7:27/mi
Thursday: 10x400 at my new 5K pace. Goal was 5:45/mi pace, averaged 5:40/mi pace. Score.
While the Wednesday run was pretty normal (except I had to take a pee break where like 2 drops of pee came out...annoying), the Thursday track run was interesting. I haven't done track work in SIX weeks, so I figured that these would be a struggle. I was right - Even though my times were good, the track laps were TOUGH.....and the Middle Schoolers who were walking by were not helping matters any....thinking they were so big with their backpack on one shoulder. Don't they know that is bad for their posture!?
While running the 400 repeats, I tried to maintain form and stay loose but it was a constant battle within my head. I continuously said to myself "loose jaw, fast turn over, I wonder what will happen with the tax cuts, light feet." Overall, it worked - and my legs were tired the rest of the day. Success!

I've never been a big video game guy, but I have a feeling that there are way too many people out there who play just a BIT too much. But, I'd be lying if I said that I never thought about this during football games....
