Today, I had a hurdle practice, the best way to put it is,… from hell. Lol. When I was told the workout by my coach I was thinking, “That’s it. Another chill practice” But quickly after I began I realized how hard it was. My body was completely breaking down and my legs became bricks! We went over 100 hurdles today,let me repeat ONE HUNDRED HURDLES (not the 100 hurdles like the event but actually jumped over 100 hurdles)!
My thoughts on the workout, you ask? I can’t wait to do it again!
Surprisingly. I think it is exactly what I need. I am terribly out of shape and these kind of workouts, breaking my body down, wearing me out, are going to get me where I need to be. So, today was a great workout. I can’t wait until I am strong and these workouts seem like nothing or don’t even make me break a sweat.
About a month ago, I went on a 15 minute run and was laid out! It took me about an hour to recover and now I can go on a 35 minute run with hills finish strong and walk away like I just took a walk. Strength will come and my muscle memory is slowly coming back. I’m excited to see how this season will go (especially with me starting so late). I am in the right place at the right time.
I know this is random so I will give more of a background on me and my love/hate relationship with track in my next track post. I just wanted to drop in, really quick.
Thanks for reading 😀
