Longhorn Fartlek

Time: 84:00
Distance: 12.5 mi.

Target: 6-8 x 1k or 3:00 fartlek, w/3:00 jogging rest
Workout: 6 x 3:00 w/3:00 jogging rest

I met the guys at the track to crash their workout. My options this week were to run something with a little less recovery than I would've liked, or to do it alone. I opted for the former, as I'm sick of working out by myself. The original plan was to hit Morris Williams for measured 1ks, but there was a golf tournament (?!) so we headed to a trail near a housing development across the street and turned it into a fartlek. We worked into it, and by the 3rd and 4th ones, we were running fairly hard. I was beat and dehydrated from the heat and travel yesterday. Some of the guys went all the way through 8 of them, but I was definitely ready to be done at 6.

Hey Owen,

One of my high school rivals sent me the link to your blog a while back, and I've been reading it ever since. Congratulations on your race this past weekend and it's nice to hear that you're back in Amherst and running with the HS team a bit.

I have a question for you that I don't want to ask here, so I'd appreciate it if you could email me at runningphotos AT gmail .com sometime.

Enjoy your time in TX!
