“More Faster”

Happy holiday season Hipsters – this is a report from The Florida senior games, a Seniors track meet last weekend.  This is a follow-up to my report of last month when I qualified for this track meet.  I posted the following times and the subsequent improvement over last month:

2:32 – 800m (5 sec. improvement)

67 sec – 400m (1 sec. improvement)
5:25 – 1500m (2 second improvement)

I’m thankful to be running well and know that most important is to run joint pain-free.  I’ll likely keep shorter distances as part of my routine, at least for seasons.

This experience is humbling at the same time, as I’m reminded of my genetic lot in life…
The 800 m and 2 mile relay were my events in high school… I’m no fast sprinter, with not enough stride length nor fluidity to be very good at 400m, and I have a stocky build… a classic grinder – and with a replaced hip!!!!

Experiment with racing and training and listen to your body – and especially those hips!!!
