I always like the changing of the seasons. It brings on a new outlook on staying active. This week marks the end of the school year. What does that mean for me? It means I can run longer in the mornings without the fear of being late to teach my 1st hour class. I will still be running early, the mileage will just go up a bit.
On a sidenote--we have been back to America for 1 year. Before we moved I was curious to see if I could keep up the same rigorous workout schedule that I did while living in Auckland. I am proud to say that I have, despite teaching full time. I successfully ran in the mornings 3-4 days per week before school. On the other days I lifted at the weight room and usually did some type of supplemental run. On another side note, my weight has not really changed. At one point in Auckland I was 59kg, but mostly I was 61 kg. I weighed myself yesterday and am still 61 kg. America's food is way crappier than New Zealand's and my self control isn't quite as fine tuned, so I am happy that it did not fluctuate.
On the menu for tomorrow is a 10miler. Ahhhh sounds refreshing. Here's to a summer filled with exercise, long runs, fruit, and sun. Cheers my fellow runners.
I have loved loved loved the speed over the past 9 weeks. With track season in full force, I have made the transition to track work. I have not had a speed focus in quite some time. It has been nice to rekindle my passion for speed. That is where it all started for me.
We are down to 1 track meet left. After this I will embark on the next big running thing in my life. SUMMER. Yes, that is right. Summer running. Hot, sweltering heat, sunshine, long runs, long gym sessions. Ahhhhh
I am very tempted to do a time trial in the 400. I wonder what I could crank out after working on the track for 9 weeks. I know I can run sub 70 during repeats, but what about an all out best effort sprint? Could I run a 60? I may just do it this week. Yee'go
