Thoughts on my first track workout:
1. They're tough!! Don't underestimate them! But I'm excited to incorporate some speed training and see how much progress I can make.
2. They're tolerable with people. I ran with my friend Leticia and it helped the time go by. Plus Kennedy and her daughter had a blast playing together and cheering us on.
And Brynlie watched from the stroller while munching on snacks, as happy as could be.
3. They kill your legs. That's the goal, I believe, but about an hour after we left the track I started feeling it. I'm really glad I get to take the next two days off and recover from that. Yeesh!
This isn't a "running blog", but I feel like I've talked about it so much lately. That's probably because running has been on my mind by the bucket loads the last few months. I've been in training mode for all the races I've done, and training mode will continue for the events I have coming up. More on that in another post. So there will be more mentions of my runner life on here than usual. I hope that's ok. If not, read something else. ;)
Following our sweat-session at the track, we stupidly went to the gym (Leticia and I met at the gym so we get to go everywhere together, isn't that cute?) and got our butts handed to us with a killer leg workout. Such a brutal morning definitely called for some pool time! We loaded the kids up and hit the pool for some relaxation. Well, we attempted relaxation. I learned that Brynlie will either grow up to be a successful suicide bomber or a wildly popular entertainer with her flirting skills. That child... I don't even have words for her. Sure love her though.
We came home and crashed. Brynlie napped, Kennedy watched George, and I zonked out for a good 15 minute power nap. Then I organized my workout clothes
I decided to be human tonight and order Chinese for dinner. I've cooked all week and have done ample dishes to prove it, I felt like tonight was time for a break.
So be prepared for lots of pictures!
