Jodi had to push the time back, which was not great for me, but I make do. I got there 20 minutes early, put the top down, watched the soccer players, and read my book that I'm trying to desperately finish before I get the new Charlaine Harris book hopefully today.
When she got there, we did some stretching. My muscles loved the stretching moreso yesterday than on Tuesday. We walked the first part to warm up our bodies and then we started to run (light run, not the prison rape type run...well, there wouldn't really be a prison rape type fast run, because seriously, where would you go?). Jodi had mentioned to me earlier in the day that she planned for us (me mostly since she can already do this) to run the mile without stopping. And you know what, I did. It was awesome. I felt so proud of myself. And to top it off, I'm pretty sure that we ran more than a mile. The goal was to get to the tree on the other side of the turn, which had to have been more than a mile. The only thing that sucks about this track is that they don't have adequate markings to let you know where you are. It starts at 1 (well, where we start on the track) and goes to 1 3/4. Then, it stops. We found a 1/4 mile, but it was way passed the mile (from our calculations) marker. You won't see another marker until 1. Jodi is going to get the calorie/mile counter thing to wear so that we know how far we are going.
At the very end, Jodi said, "Pick it up," so that we could sprint hard to the tree. I complained about my legs being jello and oh how this sucks, but I did it. I made it. Another notch on the belt of pride.
Now, it was time for our cool down. I love this part. When we were walking, we noticed a nice, new, flat, and wood deck and that seemed like the perfect spot to do our yoga stretches. Mainly, we were happy it didn't have stickers or ants. We spent probably 15-20 minutes performing yoga stretches that we tried to remember from what Sky and Slade taught us (check them out at yogaflight). It's not easy. Some kids came up and one impressed us that he knew we were doing yoga and that they both had on roller skates (not roller blades). Yeah, I'm old school, don't judge me. After we were done, we walked back to the car and talked about our next plan of action.
Since we are doing tunnel Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, we decided to forego training on Friday morning. We decided this mainly because Jodi has to get to work early so that she can get off (hee hee) early to go to the airport and I don't want to get up any earlier than I have to on my day off. So, we mutually decided that we can do an ab workout on Friday for alittle exercise and possibly walk around the tunnel area in Colorado for an exercise. I didn't want to do a run on Saturday, because the tunnel is going to kick my ass big time and I need to save all of my energy.
Next week will be rough on our schedule. We plan to run Thursday, Friday, and Sunday (cross train on Saturday), but I forgot that I'm headed to Lubbock. We will work something out.
