Yep. In early February. I love it.
I hit the track on Thursday night after class. There was just a little snow / ice on the south side in the shadow of St. Thomas' new building, but the first few lanes were clear:
4 x 1600m with 2:00 rest:
#1: 2:52, 2:50 = 5:42
Part of the girls track team hopped on the track for some quick "pick-ups" during my second interval, and that made me push harder. I wasn't trying to impress anyone... I just feel like I always try to run harder when I have an audience. ESPECIALLY an audience of runners.
#2: 2:44, 2:47 = 5:31
#3: 2:49, 2:44 = 5:33
I blew a snot-rocket out of each nostril before my final interval, and I watched the wind take one of the "rockets" and land it directly on my shoe:
Awesome. Thanks wind.
So that's an average of 5:34.25 / 1600! Nice. I'll take it!
Here's a photo I snapped just after finishing my last interval:
You can't see my shorts, but you CAN see my short sleeves! In Feb! In MN!
Back with another GIVEAWAY early next week!!
