All things considered, I'm in wayyyy better shape than I would have guessed. This cycle, my goals are different, soI'm doing workouts that I don't normally do. Instead of trying to run a fast marathon, I'm trying to run a fast 5K or 10K on the track. That means that I actually need to get out on the track and get these old wheels spinning.
Just one week back from Costa Rica, and I crushed a ten mile wave tempo with Jay. I was surprised at how easy it felt. I hope that I can do this workout again in a few months and try for 610/540.
The track workout on Friday was lots of fun. Terry told me to go out slower - like 39, but I kept consistently hitting 35/36 so I just decided to stick with it. It's been absolutely beautiful out, so that plays a big role in these times for me. Even though I'm only two weeks into training for a track race, I feel pretty confident with these first steps!
