On April 11, 2007 Uptown Girl officially began regaining her speedy status. The shoes have been dusted off and took part in a progression run around the reservoir this morning (3x reservoir/.5 mile pickups getting slightly faster on each one). My last one clocked in at 7:10 which was slightly faster than I had intended. All in all - felt good and it's fun to be pushing the envelope again. Best part is this was my fourth run in five days and besides the normal "aches" I feel fine. Yahoo! :-)
Sadly, I will not be racing the Brooklyn Half this weekend. It's the first year I won't be taking part.
The good news is that in two weeks I will be getting ready to fly away for a week in Austria! Now that really deserves a WAHOOOOO!
For now it's off to Connecticut for work. Yep, they send me to all the rocking places.
