Track Attack

So yesterday I found the sah-weetest track at a community centre in my neighbourhood. Why it made my life:

  • It’s inside
  • It’s FREEEEE
  • It has a lane just for running
  • It’s in an ice rink so it’s nice and COOL
  • It’s soft on my feet
  • All the seniors doing their walks give me funny faces when they see my stupid shoes

The downside was I don’t get satellite reception there so I couldn’t use my Garmin or MapMyRun app. I used a timer instead and made sure I was done my laps before the beep! It worked out pretty well!

I did about 44 laps total, it went like this:

  • 4 laps warm up
  • 6.5 laps (1600m/1 mile) in 7:46mins
  • 3.25 laps (800m) recovery
  • 6.5 laps in 7:46mins
  • 3.25 laps recovery
  • 6.5 laps in 7:46mins
  • 3.25 laps recovery
  • 6.5 laps in 7:46mins
  • 4 laps cool down

In the end I felt like a champ but got a bit tired of literally running in circles so I decided to just walk home, about 4km or 2.5 miles. I took my SWEET time walking and by the time I got home my calorie burn was cray.

Eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, EVERYBODAYY. Yeah I did.

Do you like running on a track? I freaking love it, it’s kinda weird. I think because the laps go by so fast and everything is smooth sailing sans hills and wind and ALLERGENS.

Happy Thursday!
