Today, I'll be traveling out to the Olympic speedskating oval for a track workout since our track here at Alta is covered with snow...

2 mile warm-up

10 X 400. Averaged 81-83 seconds for the first 9. Ran the 10th in 75. Made me smile.

2 mile cool down

Hope the oval is not covered with ice!

Good one Bret.The Ice Oval has an oversized indoor track around it. Like 450 meters.

Someone’s tearing up the track, figuratively.
