To be honest, I don't really know how to do speed work. Shoot, I'm less than two weeks away from race day and I haven't even figured out what all the abbreviations mean on my running schedule. With that disclaimer, the following is a breakdown of my workout tonight. Basically, I had to run 400 meters 12 times in 2 different sets, so I broke it down below at a per mile pace, even though I was only running quarter miles.
1. 6:00 pace
I realized I had more to give after my first set so I ran my second set a little faster. If there is a mathematical equation for doing speed work, I wish I knew what it was. I just try and run faster than my normal pace and hope that equates to being faster on race day. That being said, due to my own low standards, I met my goal during this workout. At least I'm attempting speed work now. I used to not even do it.
