Happy to report that I am not as sore/stiff after playing 60 minutes of full speed basketball yesterday as I was about three weeks ago when I played. As a result, I ran 6 miles tonight, including 3 times around the lower loop of Central Park. I thought I was keeping a solid pace until this 60-70 year old man with a Rip Van Winkle beard and wearing a tank top with the Canadian flag on it BOLTED past me. I tried to keep up but this guy was part rabbit. However, keeping with my OPTIMISTIC outlook, I’m using this experience as encouragement!!! If Canadian Methuselah can run that fast, so can I!!!
With that said, I still feel that I need to build speed, so I’m going to try and pick up the sprinting workouts in the next 2-3 weeks. I should be PEAKING now!!
