Where: Treadmill at InsideOut Gym


I was feeling good this morning and actually lookin’ forward to my date with the treadmill.  This workout intimidated me a little bit because the only “track” work I’ve done are 400 repeats.  The 800 and 1200 especially scared me – that’s 2 and 3 laps y’all.  I know that’s less than a mile but counting your distance in loops is very different than having a route to follow.  The last 600 and 400 were very difficult to finish all the way at my goal pace but I did it – breathing hard and throwing sweat everywhere – luckily for me, the morning crowd had come and gone!

I planned on doing my TRX circuit in the afternoon but my legs begged me to leave them out of it (burning quads!), so I completed the arms and core moves only – I think I’ll be grateful for that tomorrow!
