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.
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?
