Heard this today and thought I would pass it on because I loved it so much: The past is to be learned from but not lived in.
Friends make track workouts 1,000,000 times more enjoyable. Track workouts with speedy friends will also make you go faster than you normally would go and you won’t even notice how tired your legs are until the end.
Our splits were:
400 m—> 1:25, 1:25
800 m—> 2:55, 2:50
200 m—-> all four were exactly 38 seconds
For our warm-ups/cool-downs/recovery jogs we take them really slow so that we can power out our fast intervals. I can actually say that I had a good time with this workout but that is probably because my runs with these girls turn into a big social hour and I kind of like being social even when it is 35 degrees outside. PS 35 degrees actually feels kind of good when you are doing speed work.
Nothing like 13 servings of vegetables in one bowl for lunch. There is just something so right about large salads.
Right as I was leaving for lunch Brooke fell asleep so she napped at home while I got my lunch (good thing she can’t read my posts yet because she would probably be offended that I had ice cream without her). Some restaurants give you free mints as you are leaving… Jason’s Deli gives you free ice cream cones as you are leaving.
Brooke already loves Target just as much as we all do. She runs around with her arms up in the air and I am sure there are a few of you out there that do the same thing.
Look at that stride.
And just for fun here is a short video of Brooke’s conversation with her dog this morning. This went on for about 10 minutes straight.
I would pay a lot of money to understand what she is telling him.
Today feels like a fill in the blank kind of day. Complete this sentence:
If I could be anywhere in the world right now I would go to ___________ and I would eat __________ and my next run would be _________ miles.
