And 45 minutes later, I left the store with 10 bags of groceries. And I even forgot one thing on my list - canned pumpkin! I heard it was almost out of stock in our area so I wanted to pick some up but I think I got distracted and just wanted to get home.
Tonight's running club workout was really tough. This weekend we are hosting the National Master's XC Championship so we met at the course for practice. As I have mentioned before, I do not like cross country but somehow my coach talked me into running in the race.
During the workout as we were scaling hill after hill I was definitely regretting my decision but I am already signed up so there is no turning back now. I need to just remember what my coach says - cross country training makes you stronger.
Continuous run on trails (with 0.25 mile jog recoveries)
800m at tempo
2x1200m at interval
1x800m at tempo
We were running along and everything was going great until three of us got separated from the group on the course and got lost. We missed a turn and ended up running about a half mile extra out of the way. Good thing the course will be marked on Saturday!
This workout was so much harder because it was on the trails. Every time I thought I was going fast, I would look down at my garmin and be surprised that it showed such a slower time. I guess that is just how it works with cross country. I am just glad the workout is done so I can relax.
What's your hardest workout?
