She My Track Queen
As far as the track session, it was pretty good. I sound like a broken record by now but it was suffocating again this morning ... 82F & 75% humidity at 5:00 a.m. Friends, that's literally like trying to run under water. A slowly bubbling black pot of steaming boiling water. So my times were a little slower than planned, but overall, it was a good workout.
It was still a while before sunrise when I started, so I also brought along my shop lights. They do a good job of illuminating the lanes and giving me a focal point in the darkness. It just seems to make the run go better when I have them with me.
Here is the workout ... basically just 4 one mile repeats with two minutes of rest between:
2 mile warm up + 4x1mile repeats (6:05, 5:56, 5:53, 5:52) + 1 mile cool down for a total of 7 miles
I've really tried to focus on my form lately and not heel strike so much, which I've slowly eased back into. The track is a great place to work on that. My form is good here in the photo, but mostly I was posing and using the best shot, so of course it looks good, ha.
In the afternoon I got in four very slow recovery miles. It was 98 degrees in KC, so I made sure I ran in the shade, got plenty of water, and really really slowed my pace. But it was good to get the second run in. Pretty good day of running! Hope your workouts are going well too! I'll be in da kitchen cookin' pies.
... Be Great Today!
