The Repsol track is flat, probably to within a cm or so, maybe less. Yet my run app thinks I ran up and down 60 m. I wonder what other delusions it has. Like the distance. I went around the track an exact number of laps. The app thinks I went 2.86 K, which is 12.76 laps.
In any case, after a wooden feeling swim, 5x100 in 1:45 on 2, then 500 in (hangs head in shame) 9:45, and this is short course, I put my shoes on and onto the track. 2 laps of walking to warm up more, then alternating walk run laps, then 2 laps of walking to cool down. I don't remember those running shoes being so darned heavy!
Then I was down to join BRBE and Miss Awesome Coachie, as they cored HARD! I didn't. I stretched carefully. My legs feel ok after, a bit tired in the quads, but nothing actually hurts. I suppose that's a good thing after 2 days of chipping ice while balancing on slippery ice.
A few of the steps today felt really good, but much of it felt like a slog. This is the first steps towards running again. I have these dreams it will get easier as it gets warmer and the ice goes away. (Holds hands over ears, Lalalalala, I can't hear you trying to break my bubble.)
Let's see what photo I find here. This chunk of ice is long gone, but there's still lots more, melting.
This bit of tiny waterfall is gone, after I chipped out ice 3 inches thick from the gutter at the bottom of the driveway.
Did I mention I fired up the BBQ today? Bison burgers. Yummy.
