|Why yes, my sports bra is on inside out.|
BOOM, shirtless picture. Why the fuck not.
6.5 miles on the treadmill.
8 x 400m @ 1:40 (9mph)
400m rest between (7mph for the first 4, 6.5mph for the second 4)
Plus, duh, warm up and cool down.
And then I spent 20 minutes stretching out my hamstrings so my training wouldn't yell at me.
I've done faster 400s, but never this many. The last ones were hard. But I could have done more. Or done them faster. And I will, in the weeks to come. Exciting shit. I'm constantly excited and thrilled by what I'm doing.
While I'm ramping up everything else, though, I need to ramp up my stretching and my diet. I'm pushing my legs pretty hard, so I need to take the time to roll them out and stretch them out so I don't hurt myself and fuck everything up. And I'm so used to being able to eat how I eat and not gain weight that I'm not really focused on how I need to fuel myself to do my best. Because I'm trying now. And diet is probably going to be part of that. I'll probably run better if I don't do things like forget to eat dinner. Or have nothing but pork rinds and beef jerky for lunch. I have some reading up to do on nutrition, but mostly I just need to nut up and not be lazy.
