My first "official" speed workout!

This was my first speed workout and it was HARD. I can see how it can make you a faster runner so that is good. Speed workout day's are going to be tough ones. I ran for 10 minutes to warm up and then started my speed workout.  I run a fast lap and then a recovery lap.  Those recovery laps are NICE! 
 
Splits:
Lap 1: 6:53
Lap 2: 10:27
Lap 3: 7:31
Lap 4: 10:52
Lap 5: 7:54
Lap 6: 10:46

Distance: 2.57
Time: 24:14
Calories Burned: 337


949.94 - 2.57 = 947.37  miles left to run in 2010

It was fun to see my speed and then to see that my recovery lap is my regular pace. I have a lot of room to improve which is very exciting. My friend who has done 3 marathons did speed workouts for the first time for her marathon in October and took 20 minutes off her time. It can only help me...RIGHT!

The speed workouts will help out! They are hard but so worth it if you are trying to get faster. Keep it up and I look forward to seeing your results.

Very cool. How did you do them? Did you use your Garmin?
