It is so nice to be outside and to feel that sun...not always great when you're sweating, but when it's this temperature, the addition of sunlight feels great. So I wasn't really looking forward to today as I had to do 4 x 1 mile run 100% efforts with 8 minutes rest in between. I decided that the track would be the best place for me so off to the HS I went. It was empty :)
I warmed up with 1/4 mile and then started. First one: 7:39 - i was pleasantly surprised, considering i started off huffing quite a bit. I was supposed to take 8 minutes rest, but ya know, I'm not too patient when it comes to this stuff- I took about 5 in between each one (enough time to stretch legs, get water, etc...). #2 - 7:34...cool! #3 - 7:37 - i was starting to feel the lactic acid in my legs - that heavy feeling. And for #4, it was a push but I came in at 7:33. So glad that's over with for now.
Still had one more WOD - 5-5-5-5-5 squats. Legs were already warm, so started with 95 and then did 105, 115 and 125x2. I think that's the heaviest I've done so far, so it was a good day overall. Now for some stretching.
