The week seems to be dragging by, at least for me since I really didn't get a weekend. Work has been super demanding and busy lately and I worked both Saturday and Sunday. I need a vacation.
Yesterday was Interval Tuesday and I completed my run in the morning on the treadmill. It is just too dark and scary to go to the track alone at 5am. And there are no decently flat areas near me that would allow for interval running. So I am stuck with the treadmill unless I decide I can handle switching up my workout to the afternoons.
Tuesdays workout -
4x400m at 6:22 pace, 2x800m at 6:40 pace, 4x400m at 6:27 pace
That was such a tough workout! I started off with a decent warm up and once I began the intervals I focused on maintaining the pace but had to slow down for the last set of 400s. My stomach started feeling funny after the second 800 and continued to hate me until I stopped running.
Yes - I do seem to love the treadmill more than the average person BUT I do love to run outside more. Its just that I have gotten so used to running my intervals inside. Believe me, if I wasn't switching up the paces every few minutes I would never make it through the whole workout! I have trouble just running 3 miles straight on the treadmill!
So today I am going to take advantage of the sun and run outdoors after work!
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!! Hope you wore green today!!
** Need a good book to read?? I am currently reading The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs and I love it! And I would have finished it already if I wasn't being forced to be a workaholic!
