Monday AM Sports Conditioning Class -- 6/20

Monday, I decided to attend the morning Sports Conditioning class at the Y rather than run.  I skipped my long run on Sunday to spend the day with Hiroko and to give my body a rest.  It seems like a good week to change things up a bit, rather than run the risk of burning out or injury.  I've enjoyed my races over the last two weeks and think that I have learned a great deal about the way I have been running.  I have come the the conclusion that I am just going to have to focus more on doing the things that I don't like during training: getting up earlier, more cross training, and speed work, if I plan to give a better effort during a race.  Really, how can I ask myself to dig deep on race day if I am not used to it during training.  Therefore, I drug my sorry ass out of bed Monday morning at 4:30AM and got ready for the 6am Sports conditioning class at the Y.  I enjoyed the class a great deal, which made it well worth the effort.
