No, I am not in Eugene but I did have my own track trials today. My usual Tuesday track workout didn’t workout due to rain so it was moved to tonight. 82 degrees, hot, humid and sunny. Yeah, not the most ideal conditions for sprinting but I did it. We did 7×400 with an average pace of 1:35. After we were completely spent we did 4 strides barefoot on the grass. That was totally my favorite part by far! I will definitely be incorporating that more into my cool downs.
I wanted to get in one good workout before I head out on vacation. Tomorrow I will probably do a run with Sirius just to tire him out before we get into the car for 4 hours to head up north. Cannot wait for vacation! We are off to a small town in Maine, Farmington to spend some time at Alan’s family’s camp. It is on Clearwater Pond, which isn’t really a pond, more like a pristine, crystal clear lake. I am so ready! This week will include lots of reading, lots of relaxing, some running, kayaking and drinking. It is vacation and there isn’t a ton to do in the small town.
Hope you all have a safe and fun 4th of July!
