Met the BBKers for group run this morning. Did a slow 3 mi warm-up, but I felt like I had lead legs!!! It took a long time this morning to get feeling comfortable and able to run a good pace. After warm-up we did an almost 3 mile tempo loop down the JRP- up 106th accross 1000W then down to JRP. Kelli kept me going...then she decided we needed to catch Michelle and Cheryl in front of us, it may have been the last 100 yds and downhill, but we finally caught them!! Then we reversed the loop and ran it again, the uphill was easier this way... YEA!! This loop I ran alone most of the time, but was finally ready to push myself to keep the pace up. Finished with a nice slow cool-down of just over a mile.
AP: 8:33/ warm-up: 9:15, 8:40, 8:44/ 1st tempo: 8:46, 9:01, 7:48/ 2nd tempo: 8:30, 7:44, 7:55/ cool-down: 9:05
okay, so the warm-up and cool-down weren't as slow as I thought!! No wonder I was dead!!
Afterward I got to ride my bike to the gym for Yoga, then had to battle the uphill to get home - I just put the gear lower and spin my feet, I'm not in a rush to get anywhere....especially when I'm biking UP-hill :)
Lovely afternoon....too bad we get a soggy Saturday :( maybe we can wish it away!!
