Friday night I met up with some girls for drinks before heading to see Sex and the City 2! I had never had a Cosmopolitan (SATC favorite drink) so I ordered one. I honestly don't even really remember how it tasted because I was too busy talking to the girls!
The movie was pretty good - the theater was PACKED with women. I only saw two men in the whole place!!
Saturday morning I got up and went to the track. There wasn't any one there when I started my warm up but soon a few more people showed up and started using the track. I copied Aron's track workout from last week and did 12x400m broken into two sets - 8x400m and 4x400m. For recovery I rested for 1:30 between each repeat and then 4 minutes between the two sets. It was a lot easier to maintain the same pace over the course of the workout because I wasn't running the recoveries. I think it would be something to work up to - to be able to job the recoveries and still run fast for the workout. I was able to hit my 200m split about the same for every interval, it was just the second 200m where I slowed down. I was just happy I was able to run all the intervals at a consistent pace.
First set - 1:34, 1:27, 1:28, 1:30, 1:29, 1:30, 1:29, 1:30
Second set - 1:29, 1:29, 1:30, 1:33
Sunday I got lazy and didn't run and I regretted it. I slept in and so didn't get out in time to beat the heat. I thought about going out for a run in the evening but just couldn't fit it in because I was waiting for the movers to come for my roommate. After the movers moved my roommate out, I had them move my dresser over to Brian's apartment because I don't have room for it at my parents. Just a few boxes left and I will be out of my apartment!
Monday I woke up at 7am and headed out for a longer run. I was sweating so much because it was sunny and hot! It got up to almost 90F here yesterday and was hard to be outside. Brian and I did go to the Memorial Day parade in town in the morning and watch all the veterans march.
By mid afternoon Monday the rain came and poured down. This morning I woke up and it was still raining. I got in 3.2 slow miles and was soaking wet by the time I got home. I took it easy because I have a race on Thursday! It is the Corporate Challenge that companies around my area participate in every year. There are usually about 11,000 runners and walkers for the 3.5 mile course. Hopefully it wont be too hot!
