Some firsts….

I’m always looking for great spots to run, and as my distance increases so does my interest in running in new places.  I use to put limits on them, like: FLAT ONLY.  In my ripe old age I’m learning to just embrace each run and learn a bit more about myself.

Yesterday I ran 9 miles on the Fort Fraser Trail.

I hated this trail because it was NOT flat…lol. Anyone who has followed me knows I hate hills…lol. But I actually loved every step because these were posted on every other post…

It’s by no means a PR… but its a win.

 

Tonight’s work out called for 8X800’s…. all I could think is yeah freaking right. If I could lift up the weird cement track and hide under it, I would have.. but I’m glad I did not….My coach said, “let’s do 6 at 3:20 pace”…. I internally wanted to freak out. How do you tell someone, your wrong…?! Show them.
