Back to the Track

This weekend proved to be very enjoyable. Besides spending time with friends, I was able to go back to the track!!

I woke up early Sunday morning and headed over to the high school. It was sunny out and almost 50 degrees! I warmed up and then ran 3x400m with 400m jog recovery. The recovery jog proved to be a good idea so that my hips didn't tighten up.



It was GLORIOUS to be running on the track again. I wanted to do more than three 400s but to be on the safe side I restrained my self.


Hope everyone had a good weekend! Tomorrow I have some exciting news (hint: it has to do with the upcoming holiday season)!! Happy Monday!

I really need to do more track workouts next summer. I figured out that I could go to a local track just weeks before they closed it down to the public... so next summer I fully intend to take advantage of it!

You must have been so psyched to go back to the track...there's most likely a certain level of comfort with it...it's like visiting an old friend, no? Haha, congrats on making it back!

WTG! I'm happy to hear that yu are practicing some self resraint. Soooo many people I read about end up right back on the injured list becuas they aren't willing to be patient.

And I'll admit to you - it was 48 degrees! Yowsers!
