Day 1 of spring training even though the season does not officially start until next friday. 4.8 mile progressive run with a hill thrown in there and 2 striders after wahoo! My lungs felt it but I was just glad to be back running!
ok I just hope you enjoy them as much as i do
- Once A Runner
Boy was it an experience. I think cross country is the maximum amount of the sensation of death a human should experience. Haha okay maybe it wasn’t that bad but wow. I used to hate 3200’s because of the painfulness of it was nothing compared to the 400,800, and 1600. Well, everything I have ran so far is nothing compared to a 5k! I definitely think I’m more of a track person. But I can’t say I don’t love cross country so far, because that’d be a lie! It’s tough. Really tough for me. And really painful. I don’t think I’ll ever complain about running a 400, 800, and 1600 again.
5k’s are very humbling for us track oriented people. You kicked my ass 5k, you kicked my ass.
This hate/love relationship even rivals my relationship with hills.
And every time I run this season, I think of spring and winter. :)
