Yesterday, I went to the track and did some pacing work. I did a series of 800m with complete rest, and then ran 6K on the roads. With a warm-up, drills, strides, this workout took a while, and I was a bit rushed as I had appointments to keep. I tried to get this work-out changed to a treadmill, as it was raining, and more annoyingly, the track was being used as a soccer sideline. I spoke with Lisa and she told me to toughen up, and get out there. She was right in saying the treadmill would be no substitute for any type of pace work, even with the sideline festooned with young Beckett's. I listened to Lisa, left, and then proceeded to bump into Patrick, who came to the track with me to chat and time me. A decent workout today.
