5.5 mile fartlek run

Well the wind has started so I guess spring is on its way. I had time to get in a 5.5 miler before work this morning (avg pace 7:38) which included a few bursts (about 8 or 9) of "speed play" just trying different gears. I felt pretty sluggish this morning. I need to get out of this rut. started "Thursty Thursdays with Jack Daniels" where the post part of an interview they did with "The greatest coach in the world." Today's was good.

Here is a link to an interview with a 10 year old girl that won the Louisianna high school (small school division) 3200m indoor in 11:58.

Also, the Carlsbad 5000 (April 5, 2009), which is supposed to be one of the fastest road 5ks around, started something new this year. The old format includes about 5 different races and you get in the the race based on your age, so you are only racing those in your age group. This year you can enter all 5 races for $75 (All day 25k challenge). Sounds like fun. You could make a great workout out of that day!
