At the indoor track with Dave, usual warm-up with a couple of faster 200s. Only a couple of other people there, anyone in their right mind would go outdoors, but I love running at the indoor track so will probably go there a couple more times before its public sessions end the first week of April.

The theme for today was quick but easy, the details being 12 x (200, then 200 jog), the easy part being that since the quick bits were only 200s then they wouldn't hurt because they would be over so quickly. Not exactly true. Pulse got cranked up anyway after the first few and I thought at various times of doing a half-Bricker (stopping at 10) or a full-Bricker (stopping at 8) but the shame that that would have brought was enough to keep me going.
As with all other aspects of my running, it amazes (and apalls) me how such a good effort can yield such slow times. But have to keep trying.
44.6, 44.2, 43.9, 43.5, 43.0, 43.1, 42.7, 42.2, 42.5, 42.0, 41.2, 41.6.

And a slow half-mile afterwards. And all done.
