Trails and Track 1:26:51

Yeah, yeah…I bailed. I didn’t go to the show after tonight’s WO. I was just too fried. LeRoo is a cockroach (you’re right Shan!) Nothing can stop that woman! I sang this morning and it went so-so. Not my best practice but I am not worrying too much about it.
I met LeRoo after work for tonight’s run. Matty has a niggle or two that he is wisely babying so he did his own thing. There was a big IRR group out tonight at the UVic track. That's so nice to see! After socializing a bit LeRoo and I headed out for our warm-up. We did a few strides, whined a bit about how awful we were going to feel and then off we went. We did 5 x 5 minutes with 90” recoveries and then had 5 minutes to jog back to the track to do some faster stuff. The 5 minute repeats felt very good tonight. Energy was good, leggies felt good. Just as we were about to start our track intervals, Syl showed up. He did a PIH WO already and drove to the track to see what was up. He said he was “finished” after his big WO but of course he was a nut and did the track session with us anyway. Here’s what we did on the track 400m (72”) 2:00 recovery, 300m (52”) 90” recovery, 200m (33”) 60” recovery and 100m (15”). These felt pretty perky although the track was super slippery. Syl was staggering around looking very drunk after that but is such a glutton for punishment that he did the cool-down with us as well. We ran through the UVic trails in the total dark (that was so FUN!)
You’d better explain what a “cockroach” is!!

Ha! I guess this doesn’t sound too nice although I thought that by saying “nothing can stop her” it be clear I wasn’t referring to her appearance or demeanor…ok, so a “cockroach” in this context is someone who can function normally (and even excel) despite lack of sleep etc…i.e. nothing kills them….Shan and I on the other hand are “grannies” or “princesses”. I wish I were a cockroach.
