Well, good morning all. How are you all doing?? Fine I hope. Yesterday was definitely different. Most of the day my legs were absolute toast. I wasn't even sure if we were having speed work, so I was like WOOOOO!! I am taking today off. I think I'll run some hills on Thursday before work. Then I get the message from Alan. Speed work tonight at 6:00. I LOL'd to myself. I walk on concrete all day, so you know that takes some out of my springiness. I kept thinking, how in the heck??? I knew it was a nap day. Sleep helps in recovery. So I am driving to the pool where we meet, and I run into the entrance, and surprisingly the legs don't feel so bad.
A low turnout the first night, but Lil Cath, and Bob the Bullet, and Carol N. were some of the mainstays, and we all did our warm up together, and talked about what we were training for etc... Then came the hard stuff. Jerry and I did 4 hard ups, and recover downs. The loop is 3/4 of a mile. I let Jerry lead the pace, and it was plenty hard. I think Jerry and I are at the same speed, because it was hard, but we both were able to do it, and we ran with each other the whole time. Lil' Cath was a bit faster than us, and Bob the Bullet, and some new guy were a bit quicker than Cath. On our last up, we started a bit before the fast people so I thought let's try and hold them off. LOL, ummm never mind.
I am taking the whole day off today. I am driving to work, and driving home. I am going to have some drinks too tonight. I should get some stuff done around the house, but I promise nothing. :) I will end this week with over 30 miles, so my mileage is getting up there. Oh, and so you know at work I estimate I walk on concrete floors between 20-30 miles/week at work. FYI.
It feels good to be back. I'd have to go back and read to see how my attitude was last year, when I kept getting injured, but truthfully, that is about the last thing I want to do. I do this crap too much, and I don't want to read it. :) LOL
I am already looking forward to long run Saturday. yay. :)
That is it for today!!! :)
Thanks for reading!!! :)
Hope Everyone has a Great and Awesome Day!!! :)
Love You All!!! :)
p.s. I even ate after I ran last night. What the heck is up with that?? I ate a ton yesterday too. I had two sandwiches before work. Turkey breast. A girl from work Esther brings food a lot to work, and she brought a whole Taco spread for one of the guys 21'st B'day. So I had 3 tacos before 9:00 am. too. Authentic stuff. #nummy. :) I also ate 3 oranges a container of raspberries, and a container of blackberries, and 2 baked potatoes when I got home. LOADED WITH SOUR CREAM AND BUTTER. I mean a lot. Some salmon after my run. LOLZ. I luv food. :)
Love You All xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
