Ok, let's catch up the week..... MONDAY= Speed work day!!! UGH!!!! Love speed work/ Hate speed work! Either way, it must be done. Monday consisted of 1 mile warm up, followed by 8 x 400, then finally a cool down. My friend Brandy and I survived!!!!! We posed for the picture above that was taken by a fellow runner...... at last minute, the Coach yelled, "thumbs up!" LOL!!! It took all we had to look like speed work didn't kill us!!!! :D
Had to laugh when I came across the above picture on Pinterest!!! My friend Brandy and I have these fancy Fibit Surge watches!!!! It has a lap setting...... but, we can't figure out how to use the setting without reseting the watch! I told Brandy, "hey, we might be able to work our watches like the Elite runners, but we are on point with our gear and look like we know what we are doing!!!" HA! HA!
Tuesday, I had 5 miles..... and with working..... it was the good ole treadmill kind of day!!! At the crack of dawn, I jumped on the treadmill...... and oh boy, my legs were feeling the lasting effects of speed work..... IT WAS A VERY Sloooooowwwwwww 5 miles!!!! But, I got it done! YAY!
Now, let's define HAPPINESS!!!!! Happiness is coming home from a late night on walk in to new kicks waiting on your door step!!!! Ahhhhhhhh..... nothing makes a runners heart smile more than a new set of kicks!!! AM I right, or am I right?!?!
I couldn't wait to try them out!!!!! Today, Wednesday, I have 5 miles on the books.......... So, after dropping my son off at school, I took these new shoes for a run!!!!! They are SUPER cushioning!!!! That is for sure!!!!
It was a great run........ beautiful weather and beautiful views .... like this one which is the local university..... one that I went to ages ago..... but let's not really get in to date details and all!!!
Now, I love sweaty bands...... the earlier pic in this post show me wearing my sweaty band........ they are the best headbands!!! Even for someone like me with a BIG-O- HEAD!!
I received the above email about the sale they were having... annnnnddd, talk about eye catching advertising.... first thing your eyes see is "WTF"..... now, I KNOW you all thought the same thing I did... I was like, "WHAT? THIS IS CRAZY!!!" Then, when I opened the email, I was relieved that it stood for the last 3 days of the week! :D
WEDNESDAY RUN BREAKDOWN
Legs still felt a bit heavy, but better..... crazy speed work! You go super fast performing speed work, the next day you are moving super slow, and then as the week progresses you get faster than ever before.... or at least that is the plan!!! LOL!
Gotta run..... the dentist is expecting me..... oh, how I hate going to the dentist. Let's hope for no cavities!!!
How is your day going? Anything exciting?
Love speed work? ...........
Does anyone know how to use the LAP setting on the FITBIT surge?!?! If yes, DO TELL!!!!! I need help!
