Speed Work

....is so fun!

Today we went to York University to use their track and field club.It was a $5.00 admittance fee and $7.00 for parking. But, it's all okay when you're carpooling.

We used the indoor track so we could feel it out, just incase it got too humid and muggy this summer (Not like I will be here anyways)

It's a multi-billion dollar, air conditioned, cushy track. It was so nice. Now, since it was spring and it's not too hot outside, we had the whole track to ourselves (basically). John said that in the winter time, you would feel intimidated looking at all the people that are there. Ha.

So, the track is 200m in length. We did 5x400. Not a lot. But it was enough to feel it out. I mentioned to John that I was going to try and shave about 5 minutes off my 2:01 half marathon, and he gave me my "Splits", which were supposed to be 1:55/400 meters! I am happy to say that 4 of my 5 laps were right on and 1 was about 3 seconds fast. Next week we are doing 5x800 meters. Yep. Then, eventually we will be doing 10x800 plus a 3km warm-up each way to and frm the track.

Of course we ran like 13 laps of the track. It was brutal. Soooooo Boring But, I feel fantastic. I enjoy hills. I think I will enjoy speedwork!

Thanks to Kathleen and John for going with me! We'll do it again;)

So, back to the hw.

You mean a pic on your left border?

Dashboard -> Layout -> Add a Page Element -> Picture

You obviously know how to add page elements, so I'm confused. I see a pic on your profile.

On your dashboard, there should be an option to "edit profile" in the upper right hand corner of the pace. On that page there's a place where you can specify the URL for your pic under "photo url".

OK, Tiger. I know you are young, but not TOO many people just come out and say "Speedwork is fun!" :-) That's why we use the track for speedwork! We break the monotony with difference paces. Longer runs are for the road.

You're so lucky to have found a track to do speed work!! In Las Vegas you can't run on the PUBLIC high school outdoor tracks, and the indoor tracks at UNLV are forbidden as it's only for UNLV students! Oh well, it's the dreadmill for me during the Summer months :(

Are you the cheetah in that photo?

Here's one way to do it:
1) Create a new blog post.
2) Add your desired profile picture to the post (using the usual method of adding a picture to a post...I'm sure you're familiar with how to do that?)
3) Publish the post.
4) View the post.
5) If you're using Mozilla Firefox as your browser, simply right click on the photo in the post and click "Copy Image Location" to put the photo URL on the clipboard. If you're using Internet Explorer (Internet Exploder!), right click on the photo, click Properties, select the address in the Address field of the dialog box, right-click, and click Copy to put the photo URL on the clipboard.
6) Go to the profile edit screen in Blogger.
7) Paste the photo URL in the Photo URL field.
8) Save your profile.

Let me know if that works.

We have the Las Vegas Track Club, but it doesn't have a track...it's actually a road running club. I have no idea why they call themselves a track club.
