Ideas, photos, routes, and how I fare doing all sorts of workouts. Riding, swimming, biking, etc. Dave Masterson's workout blog.

Moon sprinting

moon8 mi. This is cool weather for May, it’s 66 degrees! I arrive and Walter, Janet, Maureen and Missy are already there. They all want to warm up for a mile before the hill running. Still high in the sky, we get to run under a near-full moon this morning. As it dips into the western horizon, it gets larger and turns a darker tan then almost brown.

I run the first three hill miles with Janet, Maureen, and Missy. We are at a good pace, enjoying the slight breeze from the west. Mary Monks joins us, and once we finish the hills we start the first of 6 sprints. It’s tough and I try to keep the same cadence going all the way to the top. It’s almost a 1/4 mile up, and takes between 1:22-1:28 to get there. Mary and Maureen do all 6 of the intervals with me, that’s great. They are seeing the difficulty level and benefits of what this would mean if done every other week.

Realization:

This workout will never get any easier, it will only get faster.
