16 x 400

Objective: 2 Sets of 8 x 400 (68 sec)

Recovery: 400 jog in between efforts and 4 minutes in between sets.

Keenyans: Me, Andy, Mark, Greg, BOJO, James. The Keene State team was in action too.


70 / 68 / 68 / 67 / 67 / 67 / 66 / 66
66 / 67 / 67 / 68 / 65 / 68 / 66 / 64

Overview: Greg and BoJo did 8 x 400. They are racing at Terrier this weekend and wanted to be fresh. James mustered the strength for 12 x 400 at around 1:24. Mark did his own workout with Peter Najem but ended up with some hamstring issues. Hopefully it's OK. Andy and I wanted to do something longer since we are in full marathon mode. The first set seemed very manageable. Things got tough towards the end. I like these longer workouts and feel motivated afterwards. I feel my fitness coming and it's awesome. Afterwards some of us headed to Miller's for some of Mary's pasta and some extremely juvenile conversation. So much fun. My cheeks were just as sore from laughing as my legs were from running. Until next week!

**I just wanted to add that in a couple of months I hope to do this same workout with only full time recovery (instead of full distance recovery).**
