Earlier this year, one of the e-mails from a local running store (Naperville Running Company) announced a weekly track workout program. As the run has always been a struggle, I’m always looking for legitimate ways to get better… I’ve been advised that ‘unasked borrowing’ of eyes (AKA ‘boss, I was forced to run’) is not allowed.
After finding a guide (Scott), we showed up for the first session earlier tonight. As usual, I was out at the roughly 9 min / mile mark (roughly 4.5 min above where I was supposed to be). Thankfully, Scott was able to help a lot with the pacing, and it was a success.
While I won’t be able to do it every week because of other commitments, I’m looking forward to the program. NRC brought in a solid, extremely well-accomplished coach, and it was a lot of fun.
