I was so excited to tell you all about our fashionable evening that I didn’t even mention my WOD and run this morning.
After a late evening, and a couple cocktails, I was surprised to wake up feeling fairly good.
I have been working on intentionally hydrating and getting more water in, and I think that is a big reason that, while I’ve had a little more fun than normal, I have still been able to kick out some good workouts.
H20 + Nuun = good for this runner.
Workout of the Day: 4 miles speed work on the treadmill
The workout was all over the place, but I felt strong so I just kind of went with it. Here is what I remember:
- 1 mile warm up (about 945 pace)
- An 800 at about 800 pace
- 400 recovery @ 945 pace
- 10 minutes: 1 minute at 8.0 pace, 1 minute at 6.1 pace
- Finish out varying between 6.4 and 8.0
- Finished at 35:30 for 4 miles
Then did brief upper body work and was NICE and sweaty
yesterday’s picture, but I felt strong once again today
Overall, a good, quick and sweaty work out. My favorite
Pile On the Miles Update
With a 1 mile walk Friday, 6.6 mile run yesterday, and 4 mile run today, I’m up to 38.85 miles for November.
My goal for the month is 100, so I know I will be pushing it. . . but just knowing how high my goal was is challenging me to get out there and move!
At this point…I think I am bowing out of Officially doing Piper’s 30 day thigh challenge. I will continue to do it on days that I can fit it in, but the two challenges combined were starting to interfere with one another (my legs aren’t going to want to run as that thigh challenge got further).
I will still absolutely do some of the workouts though. . . so I’ll keep you up to date when I do!
Alright, back to relaxing 🙂
I’ll be back later with an old favorite: Silent Sunday!
Question of the Afternoon: How are you doing with your healthy goals/challenges this November?
