First time on the track in a while!

I was out for a run this afternoon near a local college campus. I wanted to do some kind of speed work, and had just done a 5K time trial last week, so was thinking half-mile pickups.

UNTIL.... I saw the track's gate was open! I can't even remember the last time I ran on a track — it's been at least a couple of years. There was no one there to tell me to leave, so I enjoyed 10 quarter-mile pickups (well, as much as you can enjoy them) every other lap. I didn't really have a goal pace, just "faster."

I also enjoyed the GPS in my Garmin Connect after the fact:
Around and around and around and around and around...
I loved how squishy the surface was, and it was nice to change it up a bit. I really should find a track to run on more often! Maybe it will inspire me to do more speed work, haha.
