Impatience is among us.
WHEN WILL TRACK SEASON BEGIN?
We keep asking ourselves this question. With another 2-4 inches of snow in the forecast this past Sunday our outlook was not looking sunny! However, this week there are suppose to be track meets. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the season will actually get underway. Seth and Maria have been training very well over the past few weeks and are ready to show us there speed!
Seth had a fun mile interval workout. The weather was fairly bearable, just a strong head wind along the back stretch. Over all, I was extremely impressed with his effort. I have said it before, training can get very monotonous. Seth is doing a great job keeping his head up and his eye on the prize. Patience will get you far in this sport. You have to never loose sight of the end. It may take a lot to get there, but when the STATE meet finally arrives Seth knows it will all be worth it.
Maria also had a fun workout fighting the windy track. Her 800 meter repeats were ran differently than she
is use to. Which is not a bad thing by an means. Her workout gave her confidence in her ability. Without racing, some times we become clu
eless of our ability and start doubting ourselves. This workout just proved that when the race comes, she will be more than ready!
Well, I finally decided to race. YES, there was a race on St. Patrick’s Day! I participated in our towns local 5k. Being from the south, I am not use to cold winters. I have only been running on a treadmill for most of the past few months. I did well and am very pleased with my own efforts. 18:31 is not too shabby.
Seth had another fun workout. It was very different than anything he had done before. he even told me he liked regular repeats better than this new invigorating track session. for some reason, every time we meet, the weather is not in our favor. through the cold and windy temperature Seth has really toughed out some great workouts. We are both looking forward to Thursday where he will FINALLY get to race on a track and have a chance to race. The forecast show temperatures to be in the mid 50’s :). Look out, Here comes Seth… Ready to RACE!
