Track, er . . . Canal Workouts Are Back

What a surprise arriving at Chaparral today to find the track closed until August. Thanks, Lewis and Abby, for the tough canal segments.

Since the track was closed for resurfacing, we jogged to the canal for some killer intervals. The "fast" group ran 4x(1k easy, 1k hard). The "other" group ran 4x(800 yd easy, 800 yd hard). Great fun, mixing it up!
