I have been running some in between races – more like twice a week instead of my desired three, but it will do for now. Last Thursday I showed up with the Motley Crue for a hill run up through Edworthy and around the top of Douglas Fir park. Our total run time was 1:11, and most of the time I worked hard to stay with the group.
On Tuesday I made it out for speed work with the same group. We worked through a timed interval ladder of 2, 4, 8, 4, 2 minutes in between a warm-up, cool down, drills and calisthenics. I didn’t totally push it to the limit, but worked hard and it felt good. Extra bonus – Sarah and I kept up with each other and it was most excellent.
NOTE – NEW MEETING PLACE:
After Thanksgiving the group will start meeting at the U of C Olympic Oval, near the registration desk. We’ll still run outside until the ground ices up, but it’s a warm place to meet for the colder darker months.
