Finally…

I am finally getting back on track, in terms of sports. Good thing too, as classes start up again next week.

Defined goal: sub 26 5K. I barely made that a year ago.

Priorities: running, walking, lifting, add some swimming (say 20 minute swims)

Today: 21:50 2 mile, which included 2:15 of 6.7 mph running
track: 8 x 200 with 200 walk recovery (25:37): 58, 57, next 4 were 55, then 54, 53. These were efforts; I tried to keep a “less glacial” cadence and to lift my knees a bit. Left hamstring is just a tiny bit tender.
treadmill: 24:50 to do 2.25 miles (walk .25, jog 2).

Just a bit of stretching afterward.

I felt better. Not great, but better. It is humbling to think that I averaged 54 seconds per 200 during my half marathon PR in 1999 and again in 2000, but that is how it goes, isn’t it? But baby steps. Baby steps.
