i ran at noon after the lady from WADA left with her urine and blood samples. silly people. they'll never catch me. they won't even find caffeine in their precious vials this time. i'm too sneaky. i didn't eat or drink anything after 9:00 last night. my pee's clean. (okay, that was probably more than you wanted to know.)
i started off with a five-minute walking warm up followed by six four-minute intervals...two minutes running, two minutes walking. i ran down to the river and back today for a pleasant change of scenery. the heat was pretty bad, but i survived. i came close, but didn't quite die.
the worst thing about running at midday is that more people see you. i'm trying to keep this running thing a secret, but it's not working. someone asked me about it this morning when i was helping them with a bike problem. "was that you i saw running the other night?" couldn't deny it.
after the six sets i walked most of my five-minute cool down. i'm not very good about following that part of the workout plan. i jogged two of the five blocks i had to go.
c'est la vie! je suis fini! (a little dark humor for my french speaking friends.)
