4 x 800 / 400

Objective: 4 x 800/400 with 400 recovery in between.

Keenyans: Me, Andy, Mark, James Callaway, Dave Cairns

2:17 / 66 sec
2:17 / 64 sec
2:17 / 64 sec
2:17 / 63 sec

Overview: There was some confusion about how we were supposed to execute these efforts. We figured it out and ran an 800 meter effort with 400 jog recovery. Then hit up a 400 effort with another 400 recovery. This was one set. I found it to be very difficult. I was consistency 2-3 seconds behind Mark on the 800's and 1-2 behind on the 400's. I am glad for the people who showed up. Afterwards Mark's wife Mary made us dinner. It was good to chat and brainstorm about our marathon plan for VCM. This weekend most of the Keene crew is headed to Dartmouth. I am headed to Smith College with the Keene High boys to see how their winter has been going.

  2. Hey Justin, Thanks for a great work out on Wed. I really appreciate how accepting and encouraging everyone is of the mid pack/ older folk. It would be great to meet up with you on Sunday if you are in town. We will probably be at Brewbakers at about 9, then back for coffee by about 10:30-11.

  3. I like the workout. I think I'll steal it and try it out...Are you doing VCM and the grand prix races that are the week before and after it?
