Went back over to the river bike paths to do my 4x800m workout. I wasn't paying good attention to my watch, and ran a little too far on my second recovery jog - oops. I chose to walk the last recovery in an attempt to lower my heart rate before my cooldown. An okay workout, aside from feeling really ungraceful when doing speedwork.

I do need to find out about track access, though. I think I would enjoy my speedwork a lot better if it was being done on a 400m track. It'd also be a lot easier to figure out the distance stuff without looking at a watch.

Last week, I mentioned that I work with a guy who is a pretty fast runner. I talked with him again yesterday and found out he wants to qualify for the Olympic Trials in the marathon. (2:22 for the "B" standard and 2:20 for the "A"). He's run a 1:09 half, so qualifying should be within reach. I can't believe I know someone IRL that could run in the Trials - that's so cool! I think he's aiming for Twin Cities as his qualifier (it's the first chance to get the qualifier), and I think it might be neat to go up and see someone I know finish near the top. So in the future, if I mention Speedy Guy, I'm talking about him.
