It was a beautiful night for a run. I jogged the easy half-mile to the local track for my very first track workout. My training plan (Hal Higdon Intermediate 10K) called for 8 x 400m at 5K pace.
I had no clue what that meant. I googled. I read this article. And this one. This one too.
I figured even if I did it wrong...I would still be running. So that's what I did. I ran. 8 x 400m. If we are being honest I am pretty sure it was slower than my 5K pace.
But I did it. My first track workout! Did you try anything new today?
