Lauren and I were matching!
20 x 400s. I think this was my 6th or 7th time doing this workout, but we switched it up a little, making it harder than normal. We usually do this workout with equal standing recoveries (i.e., if the 400 takes 90 seconds to complete, you stand for 90 seconds before going on to the next one), but this time we did 200m jogs after each 400m interval.
During the cool-down, I talked to my coach about wanting to work on doing a 5k/10k training cycle after Boston and then building up to a half and then a full (thinking of CIM for real this year:). I would love to work towards a faster leg turnover and feeling explosive in the short distances, which I think will help my marathon in the long run. I’ve never done this before, but it is making me feel really excited, and that is how I decide what to do next:)
I took this class afterward! I’m really liking pilates right now during peak week because it keeps things activated and firing without making my legs sore like some weight lifting does.
We attempted to ski but only made it one run before the lifts were closed because of lightening.
We brought food to my parent’s house to cook because our kitchen was dusty yesterday…
I swear we thought this would all be happening after Boston but they started getting to work right away, ha. I’m a little stressed.
It’s all going to be worth it in the end (I’m repeating to myself as a mantra)… Mom, we might be living with you again soon;).
Who does pilates?! Tell me your thoughts on it!
How often do you run on a track?
Favorite electrolyte drink and flavor?

Q from Andrew, tell us something you cannot live without.
