I did a great SPEEDWORK session this evening! I was so excited to have some free time this evening (no work, YAY!) that I positively tore out of my house!
It was a very unstructured speedwork session — normally, I try to do 8:00 min/miles for rotating 0.25-mile intervals, but it’s been so long since I did a speedwork session that I forgot my 0.25-mile markers! So I just tried to run as fast as I could every now and then. :) Here are my split times:
- Mile 1: 8:40
- Mile 2: 9:20
- Mile 3: 8:40
- Mile 4: 9:00
I also took walk breaks (just 30 seconds or so) in after Mile 2 and Mile 3. Here are my statistics:
- Duration: 36 minutes
- Distance: 4 miles
- Calories Burned: 320
I came home, took the dogs on a 0.25-mile walk, and did some strength moves (10 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, and physical therapy knee moves).
Woo-hoo! Don’t you LOVE how GOOD you feel after a hard and sweaty workout??
Here are my eats for the afternoon and evening. I snacked on Oikos Greek Yogurt and granola.
And dinner was cous-cous, kidney beans, sugar snap peas, and asparagus.
Never can have too many greens!
I’m going to get through my e-mails, watch America’s Got Talent, and try to get to bed early! I hope I can go on a run tomorrow morning.
Have a wonderful evening!
PS – Just ate a piece of cold bread from the fridge. I was hangry!
