I think track workouts are super important for training for my races. I have done speed workouts for almost all of my big important races (AKA marathons and half marathons). When I joined the running club I knew they also did track workouts once a week and I was so excited. I know they make me so strong and fast. We meet every Tuesday night at 6:15pm and a local middle school. It's a dirt track, which my legs LOVE! I have heard our times might be a few seconds slower but whatever...

One night in February about 15 of us showed up and we were all wearing our headlamps (around our waists) and ran 4 X 800 then daylights savings came thank goodness! We have a gorgeous view as well so coming in on the last turn we can just look up :) So 12 weeks later we are still meeting.

I am so glad at my age I can still run on the track and am so grateful. On the track it' s just me and yes I may get competitive with some of the other ladies but the track is just pure running!!!!
