Marathon Training Day #55: 8×400 down Queen Street

This intersection didn't exist when we moved in three years ago. Progress. It's crazy.

Today was speedwork day. I know it’s not the best idea to do speedwork the day before your long run, but hey, what can you do? Life happens. It was warm(er) and the sidewalks were clear(er) so I decided to skip the TTC and $8 entry fee to Monarch Park Stadium and run the 400 metre stretch of road near my house eight times.

Here’s how it went:

1:47:91
1:46:38
1:49:33
1:46:46
1:50:68
1:47:32
1:46:45
1:48:24

I am getting faster. It doesn’t feel that way, but the times are there. It almost makes speedwork worth it.
