Speed Day Monday: I love doing my speed day on Monday because my legs are screaming for a run after a rest day:) It was hard peeling myself out of bed though…wouldn’t that be awesome if there was a magic pill that made getting up in the morning feel good and super easy? My dad is an inventor…I will tell him to get working on making that asap.
Today I did 13.1 miles, 1% incline in 1:29:21…..that is 3 minutes faster than last week and I feel pretty good about it. I guess speed training and hill workouts are helping!
I did mile repeats throughout the first hour of the run (anywhere between 6:10-6:45) with 800’s at a slower pace (anywhere between 7:00-7:24). For the last part I ran at a 7:01 pace….I do need to work on some negative splits though.
Call me a weirdo but I love the end of a workout where I feel like I am going to puke. I know that I pushed myself past what I thought possible. What should my goal be for my 1/2 marathon in 19 days?
Basically, I am obsessed with you guys and I want to give you a lil sometin sometin but we are poor so I can’t give you a treadmill or a kitchenaid…..fast forward 4 years until Billy is done with law school and my giveaways will be off the hook.
