Last week’s practice was full of variety in workouts and runs which was exciting and new. On Monday we had another round of sweaty circuits with obstacles of abs, with stretchy bands. Between each obstacle we were asked to sprint about 25m. Tuesday and Wednesday called for a long run around the Duke area and a nice conversational pace. I was absent Thursday due to a college interview but made it back for practice the next day on Friday to end the week. Friday consisted of freezy pops and potato sack races to reward the team for the long week we had endured.
I have just finished my 10th Saturday morning Parkrun, officially joining the 10 Club! The Saturday was mild enough to finally wear brightly colored shorts! The turn out was big, and I placed in the top 5! The best part of the morning was the free 10 Club shirt that was waiting in my runner’s account!
This week at track was filled with intense, but satisfying workouts! On Tuesday we did a well rounded mid distance workout in which we completed 2x 800, with a 400 slow jog, 2x 600, with 400 slow jog, and lastly 3x 200- of which I knew I had pushed myself, because afterwords I felt ready to throw up.
I wasn’t able to attend Thursday’s practice, but I am very excited for next weeks practices!
