Workout Notes 2008 Week 30
This week represented both the beginning and the end. It was the beginning of developing my routine around my new office. This meant getting a membership at the Plano Lifetime Club, and more importantly learning some new running routes!

Monday was the first day in the new office. I thought it might be a disaster so I worked from home in the morning, did my short intervals at the park by the house and then I went to the office. Tuesday I went to the new gym and got a nice swim in by myself. I am going to miss having Mary pace me though my workouts. Wednesday I went to SMU and did a 600 TT with Coach Vaughan. They were having soccer camps and so there were benches in lane one on both the front and back stretches. Plus a zillion kids. In spite of that, I ran my fastest 600 of the season - by four or five seconds! Wow! Thursday, I did my first run from the new club by work - just 37 minutes easy in the 100+ heat! Then Friday another 3000 at the new pool. Saturday evening was the Texas Masters Championships - my last track meet of the season. I ran the 800 in 2:16.19 which is my fastest time since 2002 (set at the same meet.) Wow! After my run I watched Orville Rodgers set a World Age Group Record (or maybe not!) in the mile again in nearly 100 degree heat. I hope I am still running like that when I am 90. Wow!

And so ends Track Season!
