400's

So, I did them....I'm not making any claims that I did 4 consecutive 400's without any pauses (within the 400 itself). I also operated my watch like I was an idiot and only got the time for the first lap, and the time for the entire 4, which were 1:35 (way better than the first time I ever did this) and 8:31. I ran the first one without stopping. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th had brief 5 or 10 second pauses, where I stopped, walked for a sec, thought about how Troy wouldn't let me do that if he was here, and started running again.

I'm sure with time I will get better and faster. As a matter of fact, I'm sure of it. I ran my first 4 miles EVER in 54 minutes, and considering I'm averaging a 9:30 pace on an easy day now, I know I will get better at these 400's, or 800's when I'm really really good.

But, for now, I'm happy that I did it. Now the hard part will be convincing myself that I need to do it again :)

Hope everyone has a very Happy Valentines Day tomorrow!

Oh, and pics as promised. These are going to be titled: Spring is on its way!


View from the backyard: Not a good day to jump out of a perfectlly good airplane, but a great day to run!

9:30 pace on an easy day!? Congrats! And 70 degrees!? I'm jealous! Can't wait for warmer weather. Then I can justify getting some new cute warm-weather running clothes! :)
