2nd track session of the year

I forgot to mention yesterday that I suffered terrible friction burn on my feet and could barely walk after the race. It took a couple hours before it stopped hurting and rubbed my feet raw. Unfortunately Monday's 20 miler never happened.

I cross-trained Monday and ran 80 minutes Tuesday. Wednesday I asked Houston to pace me through a speed session on the track thinking that it might help boost my confidence before this weekends tempo/long run double.

40min w/u, 15 min c/d
8x800m w/90-2min rest
2:45,2:43,2:41,2:41,2,41,2:41,2:38,2:38

This workout went fine. I never struggled, I negative split most of them. I even had a cheering section for the last two (thanks Ladies). I'm in shape, I know this. Still trying to prove it on the race course.

OUCH! That sounds really painful (the friction burn).
