1. I hate running in circles.
2. I despise running the 800m
But I went there knowing that if I ever want to improve my time, I had to do it.
I was scheduled to do 6x800m with 400m recovery.
I only was able to do 4. My legs started to feel like jello because I had run five miles and done a lower body workout the day before.
But I am proud of my times.
1x800 4:37 (9:14 pace)
2x800 4:34 (9:08 pace)
3x800 4:40 (9:20 pace)
4x800 4:39 (9:18 pace)
My usual runs are about 11:00 pace, 10:30 on a good day. So I think I did good pushing myself. I wasn't sure how much you were supposed to increase you pace by. Any advice?
After my workout I made some delicious spicy coconut shrimp
with mango salsa and coconut jasmine rice.
Today I am going to attempt to give my legs a break in preparation for my long run on Friday. I think a walk with the dog would help loosen them up.
Also in the plans today:
**Read a book outside in the sun. (I picked up "Born to Run" after hearing how good it is)
**Learn how to make scones.
**Maybe yoga class tonight. I wish it was on the beach like this!
**Find some new music. Any favorites your loving right now? I need some new artists!
Do you bake? What is you favorite pastry to make?
Do you do intervals?
