With the sun shining, slight clouds, and a wind on the back stretch I rode up to the track for another short, faster session. Sunscreen, light clothing and spikes were on.
Drills + hip swings
4 x 60m strides
3 x 1k at faster than 5K PB pace w/ 200m jog between
1K cool down
Sarah and the kids were at the track as well. Unsolicited advice after my second repeat was that I need to relax. She was right, I was thinking, as I was getting ready for my last repeat. My shoulders felt a bit tight. Maybe I should listen to her more often?
Audrey ran around the track once with a few walking breaks thrown in. Not a bad 400m repeat. Her cool down consisted of running up the grassy hill and rolling down it several times. She's on her way!
