Tuesday track: night and short

Oh, sorry. I meant to type "nice and short", but being as we run at the crack of dawn, I slipped.
This is the actual crack. PS: NOLA, I love you. 
Back to the track at 5:30! This week a larger group showed up, but I still didn't have someone quite my pace. Again, I started with Melissa, who is way faster than me - so I soon dropped back. This is not the most ideal way to run a workout, although I like the incentive of someone running a little faster than me. We ran a weird workout: 6x "broken 800s" - 600 at 5k pace, then 200 easy run, then straight into the next rep. I made my easy runs into a light jog, which made the no-stops workout more manageable for me. Melissa hammered away at 7:30 pace for her 200's, because she's in way better shape.
Oak street without a cab blocking my way: a rare sight

No stops means a fast workout, and I was home in an hour, watching the sun come up over Oak Street.

  1. Hi Gracie,

    I wanted to reach out--I'm working on a story for national women's magazine about back pain and we're touching on chiropractor visits. I read your post from a couple years ago about how you stopped going to one and why. I'd love to talk to you more about it--would you be willing to chat for a brief interview? I can also let you know more about the story and what magazine this is for. Let me know what you think! You can contact me at jessica.migala@gmail.com.
    Best,

  3. Wait, did you take those pictures at 5:30? I'm guessing no? Because it would be pitch black at 5:30 here... the lack of daylight is so depressing right now!!!
