Back in the Swing

It appears my groin has been hampering more than I thought.  I had a pretty good workout today.  It was a hard one.  I have lost a bit, but nothing I cannot recover with some good weeks ahead.  My big race is May 8th I think, so I take two steps back to take 3 steps forward.

Last night we did 4-10:00's @ 2 min recovery.  Those puppies are hard.

My miles splits were:

3.- 7:25  (I think)
4:- 7:30

omg was that last one hard.  It took me 2-1/2 laps to get going on the 4th one.  I was able to reel in Jerry, and tried going for the man with many first names.  I couldn't catch him, but it was a good effort.  On my warm down, I made it a 1/2 mile and walked the rest of the way.  I was spent.  :)

Good workout.  Obviously I am going in the wrong direction on the laps.  I was supposed to try and go faster on the second 2, not slower.  :)

I have a couple good weeks of some long runs.  I am thinking 18-ish this week, and we run the 25K course as practice after that.

Guess that is about it.  Saw a great sunset last night.

Not much else today.

cya!!!  Have a great day!!!!  :))))

Going to be a warm one for us today.  Love that!!

A List, cause I am cool like that:
  • Hope everyone got a 2:00 a.m. phone call from their brother-in-law replaying a Hawk Harrelson trademark "You Can Put It On the Board"
  • Why do I only sleep 4 hours after a track workout??  Nuts
  • We decided the Hawk Harrelson thing was the first time that happened ever from Hawaii to Michigan.
  • funny stories!!! 
Have a good one!!  Now what do I do for 2 hours???

Glad the groin is feeling better!! Take care of yourself! Oh and if you can only sleep 4 hours after running hard - you must sleep about 20 minutes after a race. ;) Much like a giraffe if you ask me!
