So I parked 2 miles away where I always park and had a back up plan of running on the road for my 800's if I couldn't get in. Well, that was not a problem! Here are some pics. lol:
|Nothing like a Food Lion parking lot in the morning.|
|ok pretty warm up mile|
|WTF??! This is the track I wake up at 4:45am for?! ok, well the asphalt wasn't too broken up.|
I'm a track snob. I hate asphalt. I have a fit if I see rocks in lane one. This one had 2" of grass clippings for 100 meters. Lots of rocks. A slight uphill at the 300 mark. But hey, I had place to put my drink.
I did a 2 mile warm up. then 6x800 and 2 mile cool down:
2:50, 2:51, 2:51, 2:52, 2:52, 2:51
It was betw 85 and 90 degrees and bad humidity. I don't even look anymore. I will say that the only perk to track in stagnant heat is that you get a breeze when you run faster. Yay for that!
