Deja Vu All Over Again

As a result of my brief self-imposed post-Ironman moratorium on heavy workouts, the dreadful - says a recovering Floridian - winter, and the involuntary recovery from my surgery, it's been months since I've hit the track. This morning, accompanied by my fellow Timberman trainee and the emerging light of daybreak we ran intervals at the SUNY Farmingdale track.

Despite not having done one of these workouts in awhile, waking up at the crack of dawn - putting some homemade beef jerky in the dehydrator - and lacing up my racing flats for a near-vomit-inducing workout, was just as invigorating as I remembered it being. By no means was our workout the most challenging but the 30s x 30s interval did fill me with a bit of nostalgia. This workout was one of the first intervals workouts that I completed when I started training for real.  Today, though I was quite a ways from the ocean it seemed as if I could almost smell the salty sea air, just as I did that first time on Miami's Brickell Key.

This morning's session left me feeling energized and ready to take on the day; throughout my work day I was focused and my mind was as sharp as its been in quite some time.

I'm so glad to be back and am looking forward to sinking my teeth (umm...legs) into triathlon season.
