Going to make this short and sweet so I can get to bed.
This morning I finished the second half of yesterday's 50 minute run. It was cooler outside than in the evenings but just as humid. It felt like I was running through pudding. I don't know how I managed this but I ran 2.59 miles in 25 minutes. I felt really sluggish but somehow my legs just wanted to go!
This evening I had a speed workout per my training plan. On our menu for tonight was chicken wings (my husband and I plan out all of our meals two weeks in advance, go grocery shopping, then we don't have to figure out what's for dinner). I knew a speed workout+chicken wings would =Katy feeling like crap. So I had a peanut butter sandwich, watermelon, and water. It ended up being the perfect fuel. So here was the speed work:
Warm-up: 10 minutes
Repeat 6 times: 2 minutes fast, 2 minutes easy
Cool down: 10 minutes.
Distance: 4.29 miles
My husband and I went to the local high school track for this. It was a lot of fun and I didn't have to worry about possibly getting hit by a car or something running around our house.
Let me just say that I will be glad when the weather is back in the 70s so I can run after work.
Off to bed!
