Run! June 20, 2012 

It’s HOT. Duh.

Headed to my old high school’s track (I haven’t been on that track in 13 years. SO. WEIRD.) to do today’s run. There was a running group there but, at that point, I was not going back for my shirt-get in and get out. It couldn’t have been too awful because they asked if I wanted to join them, so yay for not scaring people!

Anyways, the details:

Run:

  • 1/2 mile warm-up, untimed
  • stretch 
  • 4 X 200 with 90 sec recovery. The runs were to be at 1:15. I didn’t realize how to pace myself properly until the 3rd one so the times were: 54 seconds,   1:00, 1:14, 1:15. 
  • 1/2 mile cool down, untimed
  • stretch
Protein shake was consumed afterwards which brings me to my next question: Can someone PLEASE recommend a good protein powder, drink, WHATEVER? What I had today was disgusting. 

LRG had a brilliant suggestion of using an ice water bucket and a rag to cool down between 200s. BRILLIANT. Made it a lot easier to handle the temperature.

Re: running in a sports bra—It was weird. Didn’t exactly feel liberated (was a bit too self-conscious for that—and all I could think was “tits out!”) but I didn’t feel horrible, so win?
