We needed a break. Surface is a big deal. On days it is raining, the harder the surface the better. On days it is dry, we can run on grass. The outfields are perfect. Each step is greeted with a loving, kind, and giving soft earth. Not too soft. Just right. Like a 1/16 of an inch give per stride of a 200 pound man.
We had not exercised legs this week so we took the opportunity this morning. Thighs, hips, calves, hams, quads ect... We hit it all. 800 repetitions of various exercise and then a happy ending. That's the second day in a row of 800 reps. The happy ending was a 3/4 of a mile run at race pace.
Everyone is looking forward to Friday. It will truly be Friday fun day. This year is the 3rd annual PRUMC Boot Camp visit to the Running of The Brides. We are not accustomed to seeing large throngs on the street before day break. And trust me, if they were there, we would know. PRUMC Boot Camp also known as "the Urban Assault Team" does not miss a thing. So, lets make Friday "bring a friend day." Guest are welcome.
3 miles, 800 reps.
