For the next couple of weeks I get to do this workout every other day. It consists of some drills and stretching on the track. Then I can run at about 60% for 200 meters and then walk for 100 meters. Repeating until I hit my time limit: 20 minutes. It doesn't seem like much when I am used to run 60 miles a week, but I will take what I can get. I was excited yesterday when I realized that for the first time in months I actually have a workout to upload to Daily Mile. I contemplated uploading and then realized "why not?" :-)
I have really been concentrating on my form, even practicing in front of a mirror. What I have noticed is how sore my arches and calf muscles feel. OUCH! Matt says that this is "normal" and my body should adjust soon. OYE! I just keep thinking to myself how this will hopefully make me a better, faster, and stronger runner. I sure hope that Matt is right!
On Friday I ordered some new shoes which I am excited and nervous about! The adrenaline has been my "go to" shoe since 2002, but I have decided to switch it up. I ordered the Ghost 5!!!! They aren't pink like my Adrenalines, but they are pretty!
