Day 2 of Running Class

Thursday, April 07, 2011

It was a bad workout for me. Insomnia the night before and I was awake at 1:30 am. Then had a full day of housework, running errand and 2 1/2 hours of hauling wood uphill. It was a prescribed burn somewhere in the area and the air was not of good quality; so, I had difficulty breathing.

The work out was for speed. We started with a 4 lap warmup, then jog the corners and sprint the straightways x4, cool down was a 4 lap. Though that was not a cool down for me, so I did a 1 lap walk for my cool down.

I do not think that I will be able to keep up with the rest of the class. I just started running about 3 years ago and since I am probably about 25 years older than most of them I expect that I will be slower. I could go into the 101 class, but I feel that has too much walking. Plus I want to challenge myself and get used to pushing myself to go faster. As long as the instructor does not mind me lagging behind, I'm fine with that.

My total workout was 3.28 miles. emoticon
