Hi friends! I made it back to the track this morning! After doing my Tues/Thurs speed sessions last week while in Canada on the treadmill (proud of myself for making that happen), it felt good to be outside again, and having someone telling me exactly what to do. :) I felt good this morning – we started with a 3200 (8 laps aka 2 miles) at Continue Reading …
