Thanks to Alison (the cute one on the team), I received that comment after practice yesterday. I really love the girls on my team and I feel a connection that only running together can bring. Before I talk about my workout from yesterday I have more good news! I got an offer from the company I interviewed with on Friday! Now I have to review both offers and hopefully make a decision by next week!
OK let me recap yesterday DEADLY workout.
Warm-up: 1 mile, then drills
Workout: 2 laps, jog curves run straightaways
then 6x400m relay style.
then 3x120m In and Outs (silly breathing/running exercises)
Cool Down: 2 laps, stretch then ab workout
My hamstring was killing me after the 400s - I ran with Abby (the fast and spunky 400m runner on the team) and we paced each other really well. I paced the 1st, 3rd and 5th runs and she did the others. Our coach was really supportive and helpful and we ran negative splits. Its amazing what a real coach can do to help you improve (I've had a string of bad coaches in my career). I was very happy with our times - 87 sec, 86, 85, 83, 81, 86. The goal was for the 5th one to be the hardest then ease off for the 6th. This workout was all mental and basically we kicked it in the BUTT!
I am once again super tired today - We have a more relaxed workout for track and that might be a good idea for my hamstring. It felt tired yesterday and I do not want to over do it. I don't understand it really - I now go to the trainers to heat it and stretch it out before practice and I am more flexible than I ever was in basketball but now it hurts!
Also - thanks for all the info on the Boston Marathon. I do not really plan on running a marathon anytime soon or maybe even at all but I was just wondering about it!
