I met Lanier at the foggy and soggy Athens High walking track at 5:00 AM. I don't remember rain in the forecast, but it obviously rained last night. Matt told us last week that he wouldn't be able to join us today.
- 2:59 (long quarter)
- 3:02 (long quarter)
- 3:01 (totally gassed)
After the fourth one, a gentleman walking there asked us if we were track runners. :) We're a little too old, but we are trying to get a little faster!
After the speed intervals, Lanier and I ran over to the downtown area to cool down. The easy cool down miles felt GREAT!! Today was between 6.5 and 7 miles total. I love these Tuesday speed sessions. (Really, Lanier, no matter how much I complain during the rest intervals, I really do like it!)
Before today, I took a couple of days off. Sunday, I wanted to run but I had an awful stomach bug that left me feeling pretty dehydrated. I ran a fever (100-102) all day Sunday and had aches and chills to go with it. That was the first Sunday 10 miler that I have missed with the exception of the day after Mount Cheaha. I was disappointed, to say the least.
Yesterday, it was like I had not ever been sick. I was almost instantly 100% again. But I took yesterday off anyway, giving my body another day to recover.
