One good thing is that it's easy to figure out the 160m track for timing intervals. 400m is easily divided into 5 half laps of 80m. So, 5 x 12 sec 80m segments = a 60 sec 400m, 5 x 13 sec 80m segment = 65 sec 400m, etc... The only problem is running an all out 200m on this track feels so unnatural, like limping and running at the same time, or having one short leg and one long. It's just too weird. I don't think I'm going to race a 200m on this track again. Never say never. Hard on the ankle.

2 x 400m w/ 90 sec rest - 65, 69
200m - 27.5The first 400m interval was easy but felt hectic, running 5 turns. The last 400m gave me a workout, not severe but decent. I ran a 85% 200m just to feel the turns, and they didn't feel good. Left me with a sore ankle. That's why I usually prefer to be outside in the cold than training on these tight turns. But, it rained all day today and was in the 30ºs. Should be snow by morning.
