*13 hour fast*
1. Mobility/Movement Prep warmup
foot mobility drills ~25m
knee hug - moving - 6L/R
lunge - in place - 6L/R
inverted hamstring - place - 6L/R
2. Interval run I was planning on doing this alone but Connor really wanted to go with me so this turned into an interval run pushing Connor in the jogging stroller
10 x 1:00 sprint/1:00 walk (the last interval I had a minute extra rest due to waiting for a crosswalk sign)
Total time: 23:00
Total distance: 2.10 miles
-Intervals - Total rest was ~12 minutes, with about 2+ minutes of waiting at crosswalks so I'd guess that total walking distance was 0.5 miles meaning I ran a total of 1.6 miles in the 10 minutes of sprinting. Which is ~6:15 mile for the sprints. Considering how many hills I encountered on the trails along with slowing down for turns, I'm very happy about it. (I did almost wipeout on a turn, Connor was a bit freaked by that.)
"And for crying out loud. Don't go into the pain cave. I can't stress this enough. Your Totem Animal won't be in there to help you. You'll be on your own. The Pain Cave is for cowards.
Pain is your companion, don't go hide from it."
