Oh, running group was hard tonight! We ran a mile warm up. Then we did a half mile loop (with a hill in the middle). We did four halves with a recovery half between each. One fast, jog recovery times four. I am telling you...the hill kicked my a**! Then, just for a "bonus" we did six sprints across the field. For the record, it was the death of me:P Then we got to do the mile run home. All total, it was an hour and fifteen minutes of running. My half split time was 4:08. Very hard with a hill in the middle.
The good news in all this...I WAS NOT LAST!!! I was second to last:) There is a girl in the group who is exactly my age, and has qualified for Boston. I am on this girl like white on rice! I am on her tail the whole time...I think I drive her crazy, 'cause she can't shake me;) She is what I need to be to qualify, so I am on it. Let me tell you, it ain't easy. She is fast!
I don't run again with them until Saturday (12 miles). I hear the course is hilly (I suppose that shouldn't surprise me). Wish me luck...on the upside, swim day tom.!
