Back at it. I’ve been missing it. Wanting to beat last years’ record. Knowing it would not be easy to get back at. Fearing it. Remembering that every step that hurts there means I won’t hurt in a big race later (that thought is the most useful!)….
Nashoba hill runs Tues 6-2-20. Forgot my watch so have no stats. 6x, one with 20 lb vest and one with 40lb sandbag. It felt like a slow slog. I remembered to pace at beginning – you shouldn’t be tired/worn out after the first third…. I always ran up over the top. Started using technique I found at Killington where I got up facing left 10 steps, then right 10 steps – just keep going. Determined progress forward.
I wasn’t alone but as usual, was the last on the mountain 🙂
No new records today but I did it. I showed up and that counts too.
