Back at it with the start of a new week!
The weekend was busy with lots of catching up – and visiting my favorite apple and squash farmers!
Rain was the theme of the weekend.
Desperate times call for sharing the dog bed.
I needed to get out and get moving this morning but a run outdoors was not in the cards. I was happy that I didn’t sign up for a 10K that was taking place in the area today. That would have meant very squishy running shoes.
I headed to an indoor track and did this workout:
My splits ended up being 8:12, 8:04, 7:59. My goal for the workout was to make sure each mile was faster than the last. I did take a recovery lap in between miles – walking at a fast pace to keep my heart rate up. By the end of the 3rd mile, I did feel like my heart and lungs were about to burst out of my chest…maybe I’m being a little dramatic.
I’m excited to share with everyone that I’m featured on Healthypage. There are a lot of fun resources on the site.
What were your weekend workouts?
nice job on the run!!! You were flying! I like the idea of trying to make each mile faster than the first! I’ll have to try that to switch up one of my training runs this week 🙂
Thanks. I’m so competitive that I had to try and do something to push myself.
Whooaa that is some amazingly fast running! I don’t think I’ve broken an 8-minute mile since high school track. I did a treadmill workout yesterday that totally kicked my butt. You do 1 minute at 5.0, and increase it by 0.5 every minute until you hit 8.0. Then you kick it back down to 4.0 for two minutes, and repeat 5x. I could only finish three sets! I was dying.
haha how funny, i hope they don’t mind sharing the bed. nice job on the run!
I love this interval. I think I’m going to do this tonight if it stays gross out 😦 Also, obsessed with your pups!
Let me know if you did the workout. I’m always happy to feature Tucker and Kostas!
what a great run! You have some awesome splits. It is always hard to get gradually faster sometimes! I never heard of healthypage I’ll have to check it out!
Congrats! I’m gonna head over there now and check it out..
Great interview on HealthyPage!!
Good job on the run! I love the picture!
Thank you–very happy to have access to a nice, indoor track.
WOW! Amazing run!! I red your interview on HealthyPage too. Never knew of anyone who’s been blessed with having no sweet tooth..until now. Must be nice 😀
Thank you–I know, it’s crazy. I love to bake for others but just don’t crave chocolate or sweets. Haven’t had a cavity in ages 🙂
Way to go running in the rain… I have a REALLY hard time working up the motivation to do that!
Urgh, we’ve had so much rain here too; and gales as I write this too, which is even better! It’s good you can go to an indoor track, must be much better than a treadmill.
We actually had some dry weather this weekend so I was out on my bike a lot and riding my horse; that might not sound much but I’ve been working so hard in my riding lessons, my legs feel like string!
