Speeeed Work


Wednesday- 4 miles speed work

This morning all 3 of us needed to be ready by 9am.  That meant I needed to be up by around 7 am to get a good run, have time to eat breakfast, feed J, bathe J, and shower. I wasn’t up until 7:30. Luckily I had my speed workout planned for today and I ran an extra mile on Monday so I’m still on track to running 30 miles this week.

Throughout the whole workout I kept thinking in my head, “speeeed work” blame it on the early morning brain, but it stems from my college days with that scooter I mentioned last week. My sister Bree came to visit me and we both hopped on the scooter and headed to the mall. On the way there was a huge hill that we were puttering up, and the scooter started to wobble. I just remember Bree screaming in my ear, “Speeeeed wobble!!!!” We couldn’t stop laughing.


Bree’s trip to UT to visit me, we were trying not to look like our eyes were closed haha

Here’s what my speeeed workout looked like, inspired from this girl.

1 mile warm up, 10:00 pace

800 (.5 mile)  8:31  pace-4:14 min

800 cool down, 9:50 pace

800 8:27 pace- 4:10 min

800 cool down, 9:40 pace

800 8:27 pace-4:10 min

800 cool down, 10:00 pace

Finished in 37:37, just in time to get J and I ready(Josh thankfully fed J and I ate on the way).

We had to be out of the house to get to a doctors appointment for the hubs. He has had some ringing in his ears lately, they ran some tests last week, but looks like everything seems to be okay. Hopefully it goes away soon=(


Are you doing any speed work this week?

Any good speed work ideas? Way to change it up?



About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
