We started off with ChiRunning body looseners and then Coach Steve had us warm-up with four easy laps around the track.
As usual, I refrained from participating in the crossovers because I am terrified of spraining an ankle again.
After the drills, we walked a lap and then Coach Steve instructed us to run a lap as fast as we could and then cool-down with a walk about 50 meters out and 50 meters back to the start where we could repeat the process all over again.
I also stopped running with Mr. Green Garmin because it seemed like a hassle to change all the display settings back and forth between miles per hour and pace every day.
I forgot to change Mr. Green Garmin back to pace so I had no idea how fast I was running during the track workout because he was speaking to me in miles per hour.
All I knew was that I was passing runners who were doing 9:20/minute miles and Coach Steve said I was looking good.
I was focused on only one thing - relaxing my body.
When I got home and uploaded my workout, I was thrilled to see my numbers. I couldn't believe how fast I had run. I had averaged between an 8:40 and 9:20 pace.
I've really been pushing myself lately and it felt good to see some results.
