I'm baaack! So glad I found the motivation to get out there and move today!!
It was a great workout indeed.
I went to running club ( I have not been able to go on Thursdays EVER).
I went early for the 30 minute core torture. I learned a lot. I like to be reminded that core is just not your midsection and your back. We worked the hell out of our hips and I hope I feel it in the morning. I learned some new things to incorporate in my group exercise classes.
After the warm up we did our 2 mile warm up. I should add that the water was a hot 85 degrees. Low humidity though--WHEW!
We had to do (4-5) 1200 meter runs( 3 times around the track) with equal recovery time. My plan was to try and do them in 5:10. I did the first one in 5:12, then 5:02, 5:00, and 5:00. The last 3 I was pretty sure I was going to lose my pre workout snack ( apple and a mini bagel). I then did a 1 mile cool down. I am so glad I went. I know how good these tough workouts will help me as I prepare to tackle the 26.2 miles this October. These are workouts that I love to hate. More hate then love at times, but I LOVE how I feel when it's over. The sense of accomplishment can't be beat. I can't wait to do it all over again next week.
