Happy Track Tuesday!
As you can tell, the shutdown has not affected my blog.
I know you’re relieved!
Actually, I am a little worried about it extending out for a while because, um, we do have that military transfer thing coming up (that requires $$$ – government $$$) and we ARE trying to buy a house.
Thankfully, we’re already preapproved but it’s a VA loan and well, last time I checked, the VA falls under that government umbrella.
But, stress is overrated so I’m trying not to worry about it.
So, I hit the track this morning for some 400s. 10 of them to be exact.
That’s a lot of 400s, in case you were wondering.
I warmed up with a mile and then got down to bizness. 🙂
Actually, according to my Garmin, my warm-up was MORE than a mile and I only did 4 laps. Stayed in the same lane and went point to point but still more than a mile.
So, which one is wrong?
And, for the record, it’s a certified college track.
Anyway, it’s just odd. 4 laps should be a mile every day of the week.
But, maybe that’s just me. Or, maybe that’s just old math.
Maybe I should go back to school and learn some of that newfangled math.
I averaged about 1:45 for each of them and jogged 200m in between them.
The first 4 were good.
The second 4 were okay.
The last 2 sucked. Like, really bad.
It didn’t help that I had plenty of company out there.
Air Force ROTC flight (platoon, squad, group? you’d think I’d remember what to call them.), a few Marines running in boots and camo pants (show offs), and then the ladies soccer team showed up.
This was 6 am.
Needless to say, my last few 400s were a little like a game of frogger except I was dodging future airmen and soccer balls.
And, yes, I did my burpee.
After my mile warm-up.
I’m keeping it real – it’s a challenge and I’m up to it! 🙂
Then, afterwards, I knocked out some push-ups (over-achiever) and stretched and got out of there before MORE people showed up!
All in all, it was a great way to start my Tuesday.
Have I mentioned how much I love running? 🙂
Questions: Who thinks all of Congress should do burpees until they get their shit together?
