Athlete Moms: Track Session

Today I took the crew to the SUNY New Paltz track for my first real track workout. I worked on my 10k running pace while Amy perfected her track start. For those of you interested in my workout, this is what I did: 1600/1200/800/4x400/4x200, with under a minute rest between each interval. Each lap was at about 89 seconds per 400. That means I ran a 5:56 mile! My first post-baby sub 6 minute mile. Yes, it did take me 6.5 months to get there, but it's *only* been 3.5 months since I took my first (very slow) steps after baby and surgery. If my next race feels as comfortable as that workout, I'll be running for the podium! --Bec
