10.51 miles in 7:59 pace
WAHOO!!! After lots of rest, recovery, ART therapy, massage, ice, and patience, I was able to do a workout today!!! I met my running group at the Fairview High School track in Boulder and we did 800 M. repeats together. I met Richey, my ART guy a few minutes before workout started and he showed me some good warm-up drills he calls dynamic stretching. He works with the people who formulated these drills and is a big believer in their injury prevention/healing effects.
After our drills, we did 20 minute warm-up with the group, stretching and strides.
Then 8X800 at 10k pace. I went with a slower group than I normally go with since I am just coming back and need to take it easy for a while.
Our 800 M. repeats were 3:14, 3:15, 3:17, 3:11, 3:13, 3:04, 3:06, 3:05 with 2:30 jogging in between each
The pace felt GREAT and I was just feeling SO grateful to be out there running fast and getting my heart going again!!!
We then did a 15 minute cool down and I did some more dynamic stretching with Richey.
Watch out, Boston…I’m on my way back!
