Spartan Shape-Up, Day 69:
Short one tonight, Blog Land... I'm TIIIRED.
Today was Run Day... and I headed out on the flatter route today, under the instruction to have "fast feet," from my GT. So... I did my best ("embraced the suck" as the Spartan ladies would say), and tried to bust it out as fast as possible... Which, was actually feeling okay - dare I say "good"? ... right up until the calf cramp. BUT... I hobbled through that a bit, and was able to pick right back up. Success!
Anyway, I'm proud of today's run stats:
Average min/mile: 11.21
.... yes friends, I managed to shave 20 seconds off my average mile time. Which, seems a bit insignificant, but it felt HUGE while I was running it. I am (for real) really interested to see what a 10 min/mi feels like. But... One thing at a time. Must just keep lacing up my sneakers and doing the work. It'll happen. I do feel, at least, like I busted through a bit of a mental wall/plateau today, however. It felt good to know that I *could* push it out a little faster.
Not too much else to report about today... other than I definitely came right home and jumped in an ice bath. I'm hoping that will head off any soreness/stiffness that might've come with tomorrow... We shall see.
And with that, I bid you adieu... Gotta rest up... I'm t-handle swinging tomorrow! Yeehaw!
