I really do love that little computer on my wrist that constantly feeds me information about how fast/far I am going while I am running.
(the first thing I did after my last half-marathon…plop down on the ground and go over my splits)
Another great trait I have passed on down to Brooke.
Today I didn’t rely on my Garmin for the first time in forever and used my phone stop watch instead to track my splits for speed work since I was at the track and didn’t need to record my distance. I did the same track workout that I have been doing for the last few weeks although today felt harder than last week which obviously means that next week will feel really easy.
1.5 mile warm-up, 400 m, 400 m, 800 m, 800 m, 400 m, 800 m, 400 m, 400 m, 1.5 mile cool-down and 2-3 minutes rest in-between each interval.
Times for the 8 intervals:
Too bad the scenery in Utah is so awful.
After a quick shower and breakfast Brooke and I drove down with a friend to a berry farm to pick blackberries and raspberries…$2.50 a lb. Yes please. The best part is you get to eat as many as you want for free while you are picking. It got a little out of control.
The girls were actually quite helpful.
When I got home I sat down to eat a boring lunch of a baked potato and a chicken breast when my brother sent me a picture of his lunch. It was not very good timing because all I could think about was eating this sandwich so I want to apologize if I have ever posted a meal that you really wanted to eat when you were eating something boring. It is very insensitive of me.
At least my dessert was not boring. Peanut butter and chocolate, the best combination.
What was the last food/meal/dessert that you had food envy over?
Who has done (or is going to do) a speed workout this week? What was it?
Do you look down at your garmin often when you are running or just mainly at the mile or at the end?
Can anyone think of a better food combination than chocolate and peanut butter?
