Track workout. I went to Sligo International school, because the Einstein HS track is still under construction. They're putting artificial turf on the infield, and I don't know if they're going to resurface the track too. I drove a couple of miles and parked in the little parking area on Sligo Creek Parkway just after Colesville Road. The school is about a half-mile away at the corner of Wayne Ave. I used to run here in the 1980s when I lived in Takoma Park, and the school was then Montgomery Blair HS.

In a desperate attempt to train for the Goddard 2-mile a week from tomorrow, I did a repetition workout. 10x400 with 2-lap jog between, then 6x200 with 1-lap jog between. Goal was 1:42 for the 400s and 0:50 for the 200s. I made the goal on all but one, the third of the 400s. I had a hard time finding the pace. My first two were fast, 1:38, and on the 3rd I slowed down too much, 1:45. All the rest were between 1:38 and 1:42. The 200s were all fast at 0:48.

It rained off and on, but not too hard and not for too long. This is essentially a community track, and nearly everyone walks in the inside lane, stops to chat, crosses without looking, whatever. About 20 6-year-old girls showed up with a couple of grown-ups, did some stretches and then ran a lap. That was fun. I got overtaken by a whole wave of them when I was jogging between intervals. Then I had to warn them as I came through on the next lap. They were cool. The whole thing was around 11 miles. It looks like the GPS got thrown off at some point, maybe by rain.
