We woke up to this and I’m sure glad we planned on meeting at the indoor track.
While I’d rather be outside, the indoor track makes it so easy to have everything you need right when you need it.
There was a group of seven of us at the track, which made the workout/mileage go by so much faster because there was always someone to chat with and cheer on.
The workout sounded short, but it was the closest I’ve felt to losing my breakfast in a long time.
3 x 3 min, 2 min, 1 min! 1-minute jog recoveries in the sets and 3-minute jog recoveries in between sets. I’m trying to trick myself into believing I am good at short/fast speeds. The more I tell myself this, the more likely it will happen. I have my brain programmed to think I only like distance speed/races, but maybe that is just because I’ve fed that to my brain for a decade.
70 laps. I’m dizzy. I stayed on the outside lane as much as possible to avoid such sharp turns, and my hips appreciated that decision.
Inspiring story time–> I did my reps yesterday with/chasing my friend, Vince. A lot of my workouts have been with him the last few weeks! He started running at 38 years old, and he is now 51 years old. It is never too late to start working towards things. He is going to sub 2:50 at his next marathon, he recently ran a 100 miler, and he is on fire. His best years of running are now!
The kids all had a snow day, so they were home, and Knox wanted to join me for my leg day Peloton 20-min class.
Hot tubbing was necessary.
Beretta ran around like crazy in the backyard
My friend, Kelsey, made me the most delicious birthday month cake ever. The Coconut Kamut Cake is my #1 favorite and the one she made was perfection.
And, I guess they were missing school because they created their own.
Did anyone else start running later than the majority of runners?
Any untrue running things you’ve fed your brain for way too long?
