Today's workout called for a little running around. I decided, rather than doing my mile run at the track, I would mark off a straight-shot mile from Coyote Point Park just a bit north from where I live. So, I bundled up and bean my mile warm-up jog out to the park. A few block into my run I decided to head to the track anyway, and took a sharp left towards Burlingame High. Well, that turned out to be the wrong idea, it looked like the entire school was out on the track and field running around. So, I did a few dynamic stretching and headed on yet another mile jog out to the park.
Once there, I got a little loosened up, and hit the sprint. I finished up at 6:17 on the button and was gasping for air. I'm actually pretty convinced it was a touch over a mile, but either way, I know I need to get my short sprints training in more often. I walked back to collect myself, then hit my hill sprints. Now these were tough as hell, but I realized how much I like the muscle-busting agony of sprinting up a steep slope. That awesome quote from Fight Club "I ran until my muscle burned and my blood pumped battery acid" rang true in my ears and I enjoyed every second of it!
The best part about the workout though, I was listening to Christmas Music the entire time! Now I can't lie, I am a HUGE fan of Christmas music, it is so wonderfully warming that it can make me feel so good no matter what's going on in my life. So yeah, I attacked my steep hill sprints with a little Jingle Bells singing in my ear! It was a wonderful thing.
And in the evening, Lindsey whipped up an awesome meal of almond crusted cod, garlicky brussel sprouts and sweet potato. Looking forward to a beast of a workout tomorrow!
