Speedwork today for the first time in almost 3 years. WHAT??!! Yeah, for real.
Greg had the day off after his 24 hour duty thingy and so we did it together. Went to the track at Harmony Church (which has nothing to do with a church at all). The track is on a hill immediately north of a rather large section of barracks that houses privates in basic….which also means there are groups of privates in formation surrounded by lots of Drill Sargents. I was intimidated enough to look at him half a dozen times and say “they’re not going to come up here are they” and “are they going to make us leave” and “are girls supposed to even be up here”? Nobody came up the hill to the track though and nobody made us leave.
Now mind you, it’s not your typical track. No goal posts on either end. No fancy grass in the middle. Just a few gigantic hanging ropes, pull-up bars and gigantic tires. He made me attempt to climb the ropes and lift the tire. Let’s just say it’s not really my thing.
As for the running, I did 3 x 800 m and Greg did 4 x 800 m with 400 m recovery jogs(Greg walked though…just sayin’) and a mile warm-up and cool-down.
G – 3:31 3:35 3:30 3:11
L – 4:04 4:07 4:09
Cool down was immediately followed by bugle playing of “To the Colors” showing honor to the nation and the lowering of the flag. Neato!
