Fun Workouts!

Master's Track is fun!  The camaraderie is great, the workouts are fun, and it's very inspirational!  I think the best ways to lose weight is to do something fun that also involves exercise & goals!  You don't even have to pay attention to weight!  That's what my "Phase 3" of weight loss is about!

Check out the video below!

Master's Track Meet Results: 100 Meters

Here's the video of the 100 meters that I ran on May 19th.  

My time was a 14.1 seconds.

I ran this event 30 minutes after the 200 Meters, and decided to do it at the last minute.  I did it mainly because my family had arrived a little late & missed me running the 200.

Technically, I should be able to run faster than a 14.1 seconds.  Since I ran the 200 in 28.61 seconds, it should translate to a 100 Meter time of in the low 13 second range!

Masters' Track Meet Results - 200 Meters

This is the event that I've been training for & focusing on for the last 2 weeks.  I'm also excited that I got to wear my Waterloo Track Club gear for the 1st time!  Check out the video below.

The next video shows the race.

Here's my analysis of my race:

Masters' Track Meet Results - 60 Meters

I just ran in my 2nd track meet of the 2012 season - the Lions Championships in Austin, TX!

It was a fun meet!  My intention was to run the 200 Meters.  But based on my arrival time and the order of events, I decided to run the 60 Meters to warm-up for the 200.  I'm in Lane 1 & next to Lamar, who is one of my training partners.

I've never ran this race before.  My time was an 8.8 something.

Catching Up

I know it's been a while since I've posted.  I've been super-busy over the last month.  Here's a brief update!

As you know, in Phase 3 of my weight-loss, I don't focus on losing weight - imagine that!  I'm a Master's Track athlete.  So I just focus on my workouts and getting faster!  The weight loss or weight maintenance takes care of itself.

Last month, my brother Q came in town.  He came to one of my track workouts.  He crushed it by running the 150's with us (at his own pace).  After the track portion of the workout, we did the medicine ball workout, then ran the stadium steps!

Q lives in CA, takes daily hikes, and plus runs some 3K's and 5K's.  While he was here, we ran a 5K for cancer research!  We hope to do some more of that when we get together!
