I remember, many years ago, warming up for a 10,000m drill on the track and watching some 800m guys do six 200 meters at 800m race pace. Not a 200m was over 26 seconds, with the final one at 24 seconds. I was shocked how fast the guys were.
I then and went out and ran 24 laps of 400m, one at 74-75 seconds, and one at 90 seconds just to get me used to being on the track for 30 plus minutes.
The next week I ran a 10k at pace faster than my 2 mile PB time 3.
The body and heart can do amazing things. Your workouts have made you fitter than six months ago. And you can challenge your best.
Enjoy the speed today!
