Journey to the Race: Day 42

If you want to conquer fear, don't sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
-Dale Carnegie

Yay for another official training day with the gym. It was a more intense day today than the past weeks but it was a great workout. We started off with a run around through the streets then through a park and back to the starting place. Then we have 3 sections to do. 1) With a partner, race up the stairs then one partner sprints over the overpass and back while the other runs up and down the stairs as many times as they can before the sprinting partner gets back, 2) rope climb 3) do the job through the park with 10 leg raises at the park before returning to the starting point again. We made it through each section then decided to do the rope climb another time or two while it was set up. The running this week was a lot harder than previous weeks, and with the rope climb my legs were shaking by the end. The rope climb wasn't too bad once I got the technique down but it kills your hands. My ankle was hurting by the end so after I came home I just relaxed and read. Great workout, and it as always it felt great to get outside in the beautiful weather :)
