This section of my website used to be dedicated to triathlon training, personal race results and certification reviews, like Turbo Kick. I am expanding it to include more generic health & fitness topics. Also, I talk a lot about "D" -- he's my husband (Dave Liu)!

Track Session After Hiatus

I haven't gone to track for the past 2 weeks. In fact, I haven't run since the Angel Island 12K on 8/23/03. Yikes.

Only four people showed up for track tonite. Ariel lead the training instead of Shannon. In fact, I don't think Shannon will be leading many more group workouts from now on since she's moving into her own core training routine for Ironman New Zealand in March 2004.

We warmed up with 4 laps and then did some drills. Same ol'. The new thing was the actual training: we did four sets of 1000's. Each set consisted of 2-1/2 laps of running at 85% intensity (tempo run, pace for a 5K), with a final 1/2 lap of recovery (really slow pace, can also walk, so that you can almost immediately start another set. I gave myself a 1-minute pause between each set. You're supposed to be able to do each one in the same amount of time. I don't know how I did since I don't have a watch to time myself. Once again, I'm thinking of buying a running watch. Ariel said there are discounted Timex watches available at
