workout at green lake track

2 x (1 x 800m + 1 x 1600m) 400m recoveries

2:50, 5:50

2:49, 5:52 

cracking 5:50 turned out to be harder than i thought. i was thinking i would hit :47-:49s for the 1600s...not yet.

i also did 5 x 100m on the turf field. i took off my shoes but left my socks on because there was lots of goose poo.

2.5 warm up, 4.5 cool down

Not yet, but next week you'll be there. This is getting fast!

Goose poo in the sock feet sounds gnarly!

Very nice. Is the running better in the PNW compared to ATL?

From allie on Wed, May 09, 2018 at 13:31:02 from

weather-wise, PNW wins (so far -- haven't experienced the extended gray season yet).

route-wise, i think both places are pretty runner friendly with plenty of nice trails and bike paths. maybe seattle has a bit of a leg up because of all the routes along the water, but that's just my personal preference. there's beauty to be found everywhere, it's just harder to see when you have loads of humid-sweat in your eyes. ;)

as far as the actual running scene goes, i haven't really participated in anything here yet, but i will say what the atlanta track club has going is hard to beat. they have built a very strong running community and identity. other than the NYRR, i don't think anyone can match their scale. in turn i think that brings a lot more people into the sport who otherwise wouldn't participate, so ATL wins there for sure.
