Miles:This week: 29.55 Month: 99.65 Year: 1606.09
Easy MilesMarathon Pace MilesThreshold MilesVO2 Max MilesTotal Distance

Warmed up for 5.25 miles around Sugarhouse. 

Then did 8 x 200 on the HH track. First was the slowest in 34.94, the last one was the fastest in 32.61. All the others were somewhere in between. 200 meter jog interval.

4 miles easy after that.

200s in 33 are way faster than VO2 max pace, but this blog has no room for anaerobic running so I will classify them as VO2 max.

Still got some nice speed in those old legs! Very nice.

Need to request a category for "anaerobic running". I have noticed some people have categories for cross training and swimming - why not, right?

We need to start doing 200s together Rob! You run them as fast as me!

I'm probably doing them a little too fast Jake.

Bret - I remember cranking out a bunch of 25s on the Dunedin high track.Those were the days.

Or I need to figure out how to break 31 seconds! :-)
