This post is no different.
I'm doing speed training! And this was the post below, that I started about it from last week:
Today was my first go-around on interval training. I am using part of my normal course, the flattest part that I have. It's pretty much dirt, little gravel through here.
I've not done much interval work before, so I was a bit anxious about this. Which is kind of funny, getting worked up over a work out.
I did 4 minute intervals, x 4. My pace was 9.01, 8.28, 8.32, 8.12
I didn't look at my watch except to note it was 4 minutes and time to stop. So I didn't get my pace until I got home and downloaded the Garmin data. I think pretty good for a first effort.
Today I repeated the same effort. The first interval felt horrible. But then, after recovery, the second one just fell into line. My muscles just felt loose, and oiled. It was a bit warmer than last week, as it was a few hours later. This weeks pace was 8.44, 8.32, 8.12, 8.33
Pharmacist Tip o the Day
Now that nature is greening up, I'm getting my legs torn up on briars running at Salt Fork.
Instead of treating all my scratches with topical antiobiotic ointment, I used this Neo to Go spray instead.
It worked great, even took the typical inflammation away that I usually experience after getting scratched to pieces.

Monday's Post that never got finished:
Training is going well. I'm procrastinating as I type, but it's only a 5 mile morning. I did my first speed training session last week-yes, I started a blog post about it, never finished it yet. (Note: did the 5 miler, now posted about last weeks speed training.)
Worked aid at Laurel, got a run in on the LH Trail, all was good. I was whipped by the time I got home, so only did 10 miles on Sunday at Salt Fork.
A funny story about Sunday: I was wearing a newer skort from Cabelas, with compression shorts. I kept having to pull the shorts down constantly, a real irritant. Halfway through my run, I stop to pee-and notice I have the skort on backwards. Sure enough, I change it around, shorts no longer riding up!
Monday was a running day off. I do luv running, but any more, with a running schedule, when a zero day approaches, I'm pretty happy to take the day off.
Okay, two more blog posts that are not done:
1) What a long way I have come (as a runner)
2) Why I don't like the term badass ( I met a legendary runner Saturday at Laurel that I would pretty much put on a "bad ass list" if I kept such a thing)
Both need more contemplation and introspection.
Okay I am going to hit publish for a change!
