We took the RTWers out on Wednesday for their first speed work on a track. They are all progressing well and their strength is improving. We did 2 x800s, 2 x 400s, 2 x 200s to have them get a feel for the track. Afterward I headed home to pack. A part of the Boston Marathon experience is waiting a couple hours for the start of the race in Hopkinton. Weather conditions will likely be cold so it’s important to stay warm and dress in throw away gear. Hence my need for a Snuggie, sporty version of course. Well, that’s all they had.
I felt like the grim reaper in this thing.
Apparently Coco doesn’t like the grim reaper look cause she immediately went into fight mode.
This snuggie is actually very itchy so I hope that washing it will help me from breaking out into hives from wearing it. Plus I plan to have on more throw away clothes and use this overtop everything.
Thursday I got to leave work early which meant I could get in an easy run around the neighborhood and finish packing so we could get this show on the road! Before we left I received a package from my Mom. She sent me 4lb hand weights (2lbs for each hand), thanks Mom! Wearing them makes me feel like a prize fighter.
Let’s get ready to rumble!!!!
