It’s too dull to pause
Here is the last video of my trip down to Alabama. Here we meet Nornee’s sidekick, Mary Berry.
I’ve decided on my first race back. I’m going to do the Mercedes-Benz 10km in Oakville on Sunday April 26th. This will be a good place to bust the rust and remind myself what a race is like. After the 10km I’ll know in what direction my training and racing will be headed for the summer. I feel my fitness is good although my specificity of 5000m pace feels far off at the moment. Between my cross-training and running my volume is pretty high and I know that I’ll come around sooner than later.
The other day on the elliptical I realized that it had been about a year since I’ve run a sub 30 second 200m on the track. That morning I had run 20km and then one hour on the elliptical in the afternoon. I then headed to the indoor track for drills and decided to run a 200m, “just to see.” I ran a 31, and it felt faster than that (not a good sign). That didn’t satisfy, so I went again and ran a 29, I was pleased with that and continued my drills.
