4.7 miles, 50:31 moving time, 134 tough suffer score
Track workout with Los Feliz Flyer, TOG (the other group). Today was a cooler night. My hands were frozen during most of the workout. The workout was tough. Elise and Amy were strong and fast. I tried to just chase them. My breathing was labored, edge of wheezing. The cold weather also contributes to constricted airways. I gave it my best on the 400-800-1200. The second set of 400-800-1200 was definitely harder. I thought about bailing on the last lap of the 1200. But, pushed through. The guys running the TOG gave us very little rest time between each segment.
I was actually pretty amazed at my pace for 400-800-1200. Since the track is kinda dark and we’re moving so fast, I didn’t really look at my Garmin much. I only looked at it at the lap for time.
400 pace: 6:29 / mile
800 pace: 7:02
1200 pace: 7:33
400 pace: 6:53
800 pace: 7:29
1200 pace: 7:41
The charts verify that I spent more time in the red zone and higher paces. Cool.

NICE! I really really really don’t like speed work, but know that those workouts are in my future again soon!!!
My tip. Go with friends. And if they’re slightly faster than you, then you chase them. That’s all I did last night. I chased Amy and Elise.
What shoes do you run in at the track?
I wear my Hoka One One Mafate. I’m still deciding if I like or love them. The lacing that come with them is quick but doesn’t keep the tension where I like it. I’ve been meaning to try some new laces.
