The Fat One predictably wasn’t too thrilled about yesterday’s run but what’s done is done. The week before a race I will have to run on my own so I make sure I do what I need to do.
Sylvan joined in for tonight’s WO at Lambrick Park. After a 20 minute warm-up and a few strides, we did 4 x 3 minutes with healthy 3 minute recoveries running on the race course. I did the first two intervals in flats and the last two in my spikes. No problems at all with the spikes. The 3 minutes were supposed to be pretty fast since we got a good break in between. I focused on staying relaxed. I felt much better than on Tuesday so with the tuning up we did this week, I should be ready to go for Saturday’s BC X-C Championships. It will be pretty well the same 2km loop as last year, with the women running 3 loops and the men 5 (2km longer for them than last year). The weather is supposed to be great…sunshine and cool.
Syl and I drove over to the Penny Farthing where Boob and Juice met us after their IRR WO at Beacon Hill. Squintch joined us soon after we got there. He did his first run in a long while and said it was pretty gruesome. I remember that feeling!
