Gosh, my hip is not right. Sometimes I wonder why it takes me so long to figure things out? It's hard not to do the things you want to.
The Seattle Running Club XC workout called for 4-6 x 1200 m efforts on a loop around the Genesee Park playfield. It was about 95% pavement with one wet, greasy, sloppy, soft, grass descent back to the start of the loop.
- My 1st interval felt okay.
- My 2nd was not comfortable.
- I pulled the plug just 200 m into my 3rd.
After that I just jogged around the loop feeling sorry for myself. But I did enjoy the grass descent each time. :) It was SO slick, you were pretty much doing a controlled surf down this hill and I was sinking in several inches the grass was so saturated. FUN. Another thing that made this evening fun was the fact that although it was wet on the ground, the rain let up right about when the workout started and it never got cold. I could have easily worn a short sleeve or sleeveless shirt today.
After the workout we all headed over to Flying Lion Brewing for a couple of beers, Yum.
