Track day with Team Library Dork


I felt good enough on my short run yesterday that I decided to join my coworkers, Amber and Chris, for a track/stairs day. We did this a few times about a year and a half ago, in the spring of 2007, but haven't made it together since. Kinda wish we would've gone at 7 (when it was cooler) instead of waiting until 8, but oh, well...

We met at the entrance to Rancho San Rafael - they parked, and I stached my bike since it's only like a mile from my house. Did a mile and a half warm-up ending at the UNR track, then proceeded as follows:
10 bleachers
400 m
10 bleachers
600 m
10 bleachers
800 m
warm-down

I didn't really get good times, since I haven't really figured out how to use the 405 in a situation like this. (In retrospect, I should've turned auto-lap off and lapped every time I started a new set.) It was tough, though, but felt good. Hip felt fine until the warm-down, when I got a little lazy and had a big twinge. I sat the rest of the warm-down out.

Ha ha! That map made me laugh! Cool that you had a satellite picture with the route on it. Thanks for running with us this morning- that was fun (even if it was hot- next time we'll have to make an ultimatum to get Chris out of bed a little earlier!), and I'd like to do some more bleachers. I'm actually walking just fine... Yeah me for being in shape or something! :)

All that was only 3 miles?!!! Well, I guess I could add an extra mile-mile.5 since I did that extra warm-down with Chris. Sure felt like a LOT more...

BTW, I like "Team Library Dork" much better than the "Melodious Colons."
