Last week, Meg and I ran the Metric Ladder of 3000, 1500, 800, 400 etc. This week, I joined Paul, Laurie, and Billy for the English version of the same ladder 3200, 1600, 800, and 400.
Just having someone else to chase made my workout faster. Even thou, I was about a straightway behind at the finish of the 3200, I still ran 11:31.
After what seemed like a fast 600 recovery, we headed off on the 1600. Again, I ran it faster than last week with a 5:40. Down the ladder to 800, I ran 2:45 or 5:30 pace. Billy and Paul went out way too hard for me in the 400. They were 70 to 71. I felt pretty good finishing in 80 or 5:20 pace.
All in all, it was another good workout and another Max VO building. I cannot have enough of those workouts.
Huge thanks to Paul, Laurie, and Billy for giving me motivation.
