anticipating the first group training session.. I'm a bit nervous - can you tell??
We had our first track workout today.. We all met up at a track in Palo Alto bright and early! 8am on a Saturday.. when I'm not getting off work.. that truly is bright and early! We did some warm up laps, then stretching, and a timed mile. I normally would be a little embarassed to reveal my time to the world, but since this is all about improvement in the name of a good cause, I will! I ran/walked the mile in 12 minutes and 51 seconds. Not bad, considering I haven't been conditioning prior to this week. It wasn't complete misery, but I can't wait until I get to the point where I'm not struggling as much.
I must say, that it's great to have the moral support of the team, and it makes me look forward to group trainings in the future!
By the way, here's my sweaty face on the way home:
