Ran to the park with my brother, did pull ups and a ton of monkey bars, and more hand hold swing things. Maybe this isn't a bad place to train for Spartan.
I'm sore from yesterdays bench workout, that's good, workouts feel a lot more rewarding when you know you'll get stronger due to them. By the end of the summer i want to be benching 3x10 at 225, we'll see how that goes. Next week I mifhrbmove up to 205 for a set and see how it goes. Also want to do more back workouts, will probably do dead lifts. And runningwise I want to be up at 40 per week by July.
Also helped Kiley surprise Jake for his birthday which was so much fun!! Hopefully will go for another run tonight.
So I did go for another run, I decided to run a mile time trial. I'd eaten way too much food today, I was feeling really full by the end of the 2 hour lunch at rodisio grill, then we had desert, then I had a hot pepper, then I ate an entire bagguette. Then I went home after we hung out a little more and ate dinner and desert again. So when I went upstairs my stomach felt like it was gonna burst. So I was like, huh I should work this off, and for whatever reason I decided the best way to do that was a mile time trial.
I went to Brighton track and did a little under a mile warm up and some strethces and then just went at it. The wind was about 20 mph going against me on the backside of the track, so that was rough. I havn't raced in a long time.
I went out and it was feeling hard, I decided if what I was running didn't come in on pace I should probably just do repeats. It ended up being a 70 so that was good, but then I slowed and ran 80 and 80 for the 2nd and 3rd laps, I let the wind hold me back the last lap and then kicked for any chance I'd have but I finished in 5:04.
So not a perfect time trial, my throat is really bugging me now, bleeding and really irritated. I drank some Gatorade and that tasted like blood and my nose feels like death, so I need to lay off the gluten if I'm gonna start this again. Not perfect conditions for a fast time, but 5:04 isn't too bad, I bet next week I can run 4:50. But before then I have some workouts to do.I think I will try to do 2 more mile time trials in June.
After that I will do a pair of 5ks for the 4th and the 24th before the main race pen the summer.
