It was FREEZING outside in Virginia.
Blasted cold front.
I sure am glad though that I do not live in the lakes region. They were saying how many days in a row it has snowed there - yeah no thanks.
Anyways, in honor of the frigid temperatures, our Coach was "kind" and decided we could do our track workout inside - at the basketball arena at UR.
Although these workouts have happened int he past, I have been fortunate enough to never be able to make one.
the warm up started witrh a 15-20 minute run of laps around the arena past all the concessions.
run up and down EVERY set of stairs around the ENTIRE gym.
I'm sorry, did I hear you correctly?
Yes, yes I did.
Up and down.
Taking my time up.
Over tiem, the springing slowed. Everything slowed.
I didn't thinkI would ever get to my water bottle.
towards the top the lights were dim and you prayed your feet stayed under you because it would be a long way down.
As we run more recovery laps around the arena, I try to remind myself why I was so happy to be out of the cold and in a nice HEATED facility.
Well, training 2010 is definitely here.
Tonight = Garage Ride.
