ATC workout at the active oval:

3 x (300m + 800m) (600m rec jog + 3 min)

"this will not feel good" [aka] "oh s!!! i started too fast" workout

these were essentially 1100m repeats, but it was (mentally) executed in two parts. the aim was to run an all out 300m and then go straight into the 800m with no rest -- basically start out way too fast on purpose and then spend 800m just surviving. cruel design, but a good way to practice hanging on at the end of races. target for the 800s was 2:55 - 3:05.

marietta street wanderings.

wingfoot xc race tomorrow. lots of rain today and there's more on the way tomorrow. from what i've heard about the course, it's going to be a muddy time.

today was the atlanta track club's inagural wingfoot xc classic, and it was my first xc race in 10 years (i'm an old lady). 

the race was held at sam smith park, which is basically just a giant open space in the middle of cartersville, GA (about 40 miles NW of atlanta). there was no shortage of rain leading up to the race, so the course was well-mudded and slip-sloppy. there was hay scattered over the extra schloppy parts, so there were no actual puddles on the course, but footing was still pretty atrocious. 

my fatal error of the day was showing up to the race without spikes. although i did not fall (i'm not sure how), i was slip-sliding all over the place. there were several points in the race where my feet slipped out from under me while trying to plant and drive forward, and it was a huge momentum killer. 

even factoring the conditions into my time, this was a slow, bad race. i wasn't feeling it from the beginning. i fell way back at the start and spent the whole first mile just trying to manage my out-of-control breathing. by the end of the race, my legs had no power. i was not smooth and i was not in the groove, but i know some days are like that. next up is tufts 10k, and i'm really looking forward to that one. i have a couple more weeks to get some good workouts in, and i hope i'll be ready to race well there.
