Beginning of a new era...

Today's training: 400x6 with half mile warm up and cool down 
Year Total: 586 miles

Today was the beginning of a new era. As I said in my last post, I had to retire my last pair of pink Brooks Pure Cadence. I'm trying a teal color pair now, plus it is my first pair of the new Pure Cadence 2. 

I didn't want to do anything crazy for a first workout on new shoes, so I went with a basic track workout. I run at the local intermediate school track, and as we get closer to the school year I always see more cross country runners. 

Last year during training for the Philly Half, I got to chat with my local cross country coach. He was clocking my 800 splits and complemented me on my pace and consistency. Even with him coaching new kids today, I still saw him with his stopwatch. Very nice. 

When I got home I always look forward to being greeted by my cat. Today, I couldn't find her. Here, she had opened the screen in my bedroom window and went outside. She has NEVER gone outside. I screamed and she jumped back in. She snuggles up next to me and purred so loud. Poor thing. Too bad now I have to close all my windows.
