Speed Workouts are Working Out

I did some speed work with the Southern Cal Walkers this morning and even though I was telling myself I'd take it easy, today's workout was a timed 2k and I couldn't resist giving it a good shot at it. Here's how it went:
Lap 1 - 2:29 -  9:56 min/mi pace
Lap 2 - 2:33 - 10:12 min/mi pace
Lap 3 - 2:34 - 10:16 min/mi pace
Lap 4 - 2:40 - 10:40 min/mi pace * 10:16 Mile *
Lap 5 - 2:39 - 10:36 min/mi pace
Total time for 2k - 12:55
Average lap time - 2:35 - 10:20 min/mi pace

I didn't better my 10:09 mile from October 25, but since that was before I remeasured the course and found out it was a bit short of a mile--today was probably my fastest mile yet.

Joshua came along with me so we took the camera and here are some shots he took of me with the Southern Cal Walkers doing the 2k at the Cal Tech track.

Looks like I've got to do some more work on my technique!

Here are some of the other Southern Cal Walkers during the 2k workout--enjoy!
