After my ‘Fear of Failure’ post, I knew I had to face my biggest fear in terms of running.
It has been almost a year since the last time I went to the track for a speed workout. The last time I went was my first DNF workout when I first realized that something was seriously wrong with my leg, you can read about it HERE.
I am so glad that I tagged along with Billy and my BIL for their speed work session….I did my own thing but loved being there and pushing myself. Including warm-up and cool-down I did 8 miles…that is 32 laps, that just sounds wrong.
Another reason I felt so good…..I was sent a pair of shoes from On and they felt amazing. I will be doing a full review of them after I get more miles in them.
I had about 470 miles on my last pair of shoes and my body and joints were feeling the need for new shoes, there is nothing better than a fresh new pair of awesome shoes. Billy is not posing for this picture by staring off into the distance, he was looking at his brother talking to him while foam-rolling his IT band.
The BIL is staying with us this week and when he is here we tend to eat out even more than our usual 4 nights a week because it feels like we are in constant party mode. I teach spin within 10 hours of finishing our run, there was no way I was going to attempt to look like a human being after our hard workout.
I wanted a turkey and roast beef sandwich (not on the menu) and they made it for me even for the $5 deal, I am now hooked.
3 subs that stretched across the entire length of our coffee table were demolished in 8 minutes flat while watching Office re-runs…The Dundees.
Remember how I was talking about how BYU is encouraging their students and staff to get active? Billy met the 150 miles and got his sweet shirt that he promised I could borrow whenever I am trying to impress my friends.
Speaking of BYU…Miles Batty broke the collegiate indoor mile record on February 11th at the Milrose Games in NYC. He ran it in 3:54.54…..aka 15 MILES PER HOUR. You can read all about it HERE.
How often do you get to the track? Do you like track work? Do you want to do more track work? Do you have tracks close by to you..if not, where do you do your speed work?
How often do you foam roll?
What brand of running/workout shoes are you using right now?
