Once again, I had such a fun time at the track! :)
Everything went much smoother this time ... I knew the track, I knew how to use my Garmin properly, and it was perfect early morning cooler weather. Just ideal!
But to back up and explain what I did this week ...
I took Wednesday OFF rather than running 5K. I had a lot on my plate and was too busy so I opted to give myself the rest day after my first track workout. I even missed Kundalini yoga so this demonstrates how busy I was!
However, when I woke up Thursday, I was not myself and this is when I realized how my busy-ness, physical labour, and go go go pace was catching up with me ... I was burned out! I gave myself permission to switch my scheduled track work with the next day's optional 5K or OFF. I am really glad I did as I needed it!
It was during this workout that I realized what I had done 'wrong' with my Garmin the last time ... I was counting my workouts UP and the watch was counting them DOWN so I simply got confused. :) It didn't happen this time.
A great workout, a fast workout, and then a cool down run as far as Starbucks before stopping for a tall black Americano ... the perfect reward! :)
