My Second Time Running Fast Was a Sweaty Success
Yesterday run consisted of a 1/2 mile warmup + 3 speedy miles + 1/2 mile cool down + stretching.
I’m doing 400s with a 10 second walking break in between each interval and then a 1:30 minute walking break after every set of 4 x 400.
I’m really intimidated by the Yasso 800s, but I am sure I will mix them in soon.
I had to make my post-run selfie black and white because I was actually sweating so much in the original it was just too gross to post. (The black and white filter makes it look like I’m not sweating at all?!).
I guess I could just not post one but what kind of running blogger would I be if I did that?
Look at that messy, sweaty hair! Isn’t it just beautiful? #HairModel (also #EyebrowModel).
You’d be sweaty too if you lived in Florida. This morning at 10am my car was showing that it was 81* out!
(Please send me some snow.)
Last week I listened to “My Howntown” by Bowling for Soup to get me pumped up for speeeeeeeeed. My song for yesterday’s speed workout was “Riot Girl” by Good Charlotte. I think you can see a trend here: Bad Music Kristina Listened To a Decade Ago and Still Hasn’t Gotten Over.
I’m finding that doing speedwork after a long day of work is oddly satisfying. I thought it would be extra tiring … and it is, but it’s also energizing. I think you know what I mean?
I”m mostly just tired because the office is VERY busy.
Ever have one of those weeks where it’s Wed. and you really wish it was Fri. but you’re so busy that you actually need it to go back to Mon.? That’s where I’m at.
I’m looking forward to Christmas break (my office closes the week between Christmas and News Year’s). I just have to keep ploughing ahead until we get there!
You know what I’m most looking forward to about that week off? Running any time I want! : )
It’s such a simple thing but I whenever I get to run mid-day I always have a really good day! I’m not exhausted from having to get up at 5am for an early morning run and I’m not exhausted because I’m running at the end of the day after work.
That’s good stuff!
Are you taking any time off at the end of the year?
Favorite holiday dessert?
– I am in the mood to bake something but I’m not sure what!
