Need for Speed…

When I am presented with a new experience or adventure, my reflex response is always, “Sure! Why not?”   

Some examples:

Navigate the subway in a big unknown city, like NY or Paris?  Sure!  Why not?
Learn to crochet?  Sure!  Why not?
Eat tofu?  Sure!  Why not?
Ride a wakeboard?  Sure!  Why not?
Marathon?  Sure!  Why not?
Yoga?  Sure!  Why not?
Mud run?  Sure!  Why not?
Go to Key West, miss your race and your flight, drive home from Mile 0?  Sure!  Why not?

So, when I asked what could I do differently with my running.  My husband said, “you could try to increase your speed.”  And you can guess my reply…I have the song by Cake in my head..I love that song.

he’s racing and pacing and plotting the course,
he’s fighting and biting and riding on his horse.
he’s going the distance.
he’s going for speed.
he’s going the distance.

I welcome any simple ideas for speed workouts.
