I seem to be finding candy all over town on my runs lately. Don’t worry, I didn’t actually eat the truffle that I found in the grass but I’m not going to lie, I did think about it.
My sister is a champ and told me she would watch Brooke so I could get outside for my mile repeats with my buddies. It was also warm outside. It was good for my soul.
The weird thing about speed work to me is how tired it makes my ENTIRE body. Not just my legs. Muscle groups that were especially tired during my 4th mile repeat—> my entire abdomen, shoulders, back, my elbows and pretty much everything else. Goes to show how important it is to get strong everywhere if we want to be fast runners.
For the schedule today—> 2.5 mile warm-up, 4 x 1 mile repeats with .25 mile recovery jogs in between each one, 2.5 mile cool-down… 10 miles total
6:21 average pace for each of the 4 repeats with the last one the fastest.
My body craved longer recovery jogs in between each repeat but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger (or makes you hang out in the grass finding truffles after your 4th repeat).
Toast before the run (brooke wanted her leg in the picture), eggs w/cheese after the run and
heaps of vegetables and a turkey burger for lunch.
These are the turkey burgers that I use and I just cook them in a pan on the stove top… takes approximately 7 minutes and I think they taste amazing.
PS loved this tip from HERE today. I will be doing this, you should do it with me too.
Hope you are having a great Tuesday… Brooke sure is:)
