running round in circles

How does anyone do track work?

None of my running partners were at the club last night so I stayed close to base with the walking wounded and plodded round the cricket field - exactly a quarter of a mile round, but after 8 loops I'd had enough!

I guess it would have been better if I had know I was doing it and given some thought to some structure to the session but I was too easily distracted by the injured peeps who wanted to chat.

And I feel a bit of a fraud doing 'speed work' when everyone knows I can barely run.

Track only works if you have nasty coach person standing by, shouting, whistling and generally telling you what to do!!!!

Running round and round in circles, now yes that can get boring. Although I did a 10k once while someone was doing football training on the grass in the middle! The couch potato parents were very impressed! "How far???"

Like you say beanz I guess it's got to be something you planned on doing.

Reckon it would be very distracting with a lot of peeps hanging about looking for a chat.
