Just when I was thinking I was getting better at this whole "running" thing, I decide to go to the track to do my speed workout on the same night that the Charleston Running Club meets there for their track workout. I think I had read on their website before that they do track workouts on Tuesdays, but I don't think that registered when I decided to head out there today.
I would love to be involved in a running club, but I am in no way on the same level as these folks. I was getting tired just watching them! But I'm glad I went and saw the talent that they have. It was definitely something to strive for!
Anyways, my measly workout went about this way: I started out with a mile warm up, then I did 6 x 100m with 100m recovery jog/walks. Then I did 4 x 200ms with 100m recoveries. Then I did two laps around the track to cool down for a total of 4.2 miles (including the recovery time). Then I stretched a bit and did some ab work with 2 x 60 second planks, 2 x 60 second side planks (each side) and 2 sets of 50 crunches.
After I finished and got in the car, I kind of wished I had pushed it a bit harder because I wasn't as tired as I should have been. And I JUST now realized why. I usually do a 3 mile warm up and I only did one today! Ugh, now I'm mad. I think maybe I was paying too much attention to everyone else to pay attention to my own distance!
Ugh, off to do taxes now. Goodnight!
