After missing last week’s JSRC track workout because of my business trip to NYC, it was good to be back with the group tonight. We continued to have a slight break in the weather with temperatures around 86º at the start. However, even with the cooler temps the humidity was still pretty intense.
All through the warmup and strides I had a little twinge that ran all the way down my right leg and into my foot. It didn’t feel like a muscle strain or anything like that, but more like a nerve twinge caused by a tight hamstring. Whatever the case, it didn’t affect my stride, but just felt strange. Thankfully, once we got into the meat of the workout I didn’t notice it at all.
Here’s the rundown…
- 2.8-mile warmup
- 6 x 100m stride outs
- 4 x 200m f (100m recovery / 400m recovery)
- 4 x 250m fgfg (150m recovery / 400m recovery)
- 5 x 200m gfgfg (100m revoery / 400m recovery)
- 4 x 250m f (150m recovery)
- .78-mile cool down
All short intervals tonight, but I felt fantastic throughout the repeats. I ended up running the entire workout with Sue Anne, and it was really nice to have someone to run with tonight. Our consistency was a little wobbly during the first two sets, but we got dialed in during the third and fourth. In total with warmup and cool down I finished just over 8-miles with an average pace of 7:59 per mile.
One neat thing tonight was that Olivia, Kate, and Sara came out to meet me near the end of the workout. I got to run one cool down lap with Sara and another with Kate. Pretty Cool!
