Thursday~ Ran with my group tonight! I went early at 6pm for the core workout. I will most definitely feel that in the morning. Today’s game plan was hills. At a
dreadful little place called Mulick Park. This park has a nice sized hill that I got to run up. The warm up today was about 2.5 miles ( same for the cool down). I ran a little over 1 mile of hill work. I did 6 hill sprints and called it a day. I planned on running the whole thing and pushing my limits. It was my own professional little experiment. I wanted to see how hard I could work/run to make my vocal cords react. Or to make my asthma/allergies flare up. I am not sure if anything flared up. That should be good news. My heart rate was up to 171 at one point and nothing happened! My lungs felt a bit tight, but was it asthma, allergies or the plain fact that I was running up a frickin’ mountain hill?? I ended up walking after the 5th hill…I am still not sure why though. Oh I know why – I was tired. Who knows, but I think our long run on Saturday will incorporate some hill work again. I might have to power up those again – all in the name of science!
Matt just texted me this picture. He and the kids went fishing while I was running. I think they win this time ( yes, everything is a competition) on the fun meter tonight!
On tap for Friday: Spin and ?
I wanted to check in and see how I am doing on my goals for the week thus far. Sunday is the last day to get them all in!

flexibility/core 2x, ( core DONE) ( Flexibility 1x)
road bike 1x, (NO)
early morning short run 1x. ( Umm, I will count my Tuesday 2 mile at 11:30am! DONE!)
I clearly have some work to do by Sunday!
