So, yesterday I met with my workout group in the morning at the track, it was really good (except for my foot hurting, but I'll get to that in a minute!).
We started off with a 1 mile run for time and as you could guess from the title of this post, I did it in 7:58!!!! That means I did it in less than 8 minutes (which is also less than 9 minutes!!!!)!!! I was blown away, I didn't know I could go that fast! Of course as soon as I finished, I was DONE! If you would have told me "Skip 10 feet down the track and I'll give you an ice cream cone", I would have told you "Skip your ass down there, get it and bring it back to me, I just ran a mile in less than 8 minutes!!!"
After that we did some sprinting drills on the field, along with side shuffles and a few other random things. My left foot and my right ankle were still bothering me from Saturday's run (and Friday night's Zumba). Sidenote - my left foot has been a "pain" for about the past 7 years. It all started with a stress fracture to the sesmoid bone that would not heal. Eventually after 3 years of dealing with it they ended up taking the sesmoid bone OUT of my foot...lovely! So, this is always a weak spot for me, if something is going to go wrong that's where it will be.
After all the drills we went back on the track for another mile....yeah, that didn't work for me. After about 1 lap I decided to walk and stretch, realizing that at this point 1 more mile was going to cause more pain than it was worth!
Overall it was still a great workout. I iced my foot on and off yesterday and this morning it is feeling much better. I'm icing it again at this moment while I'm at work...gotta love frozen peas!
