Another Tuesday night = Another running club workout.
We switched up the meeting place this week and went to a local park instead of the track. It was good to switch things up but it was hard to run on the grass, trails and hills!
First we did approximately two miles for warm up on the trails. This was when I was wishing I had a garmin, although I am not sure it would have been able to get an accurate reading because of all the tree cover. We then split up into workout and pace groups and set out.
My group was doing a ladder workout:
First set: 1-2-3-4-3-2-1 with at 5k pace, with same recovery time (1 min fast, 1 min easy, etc)
Second set: 1-2-3-2-1 (same idea as above, just took out the 4 minutes cause we were tired)
By the end of this workout my hips were killing me from running on the grass. It took a lot of focus to run fast on the grass and not trip. We totaled roughly 9 miles by my estimates and I was beat by the end. Today my legs aren't sore, but I can tell they are tired from the workout last night.
Now onto Part 2 of scrapbooking (first part here)! I try to keep my projects pretty simple, plus I am not that creative. I just like to see all the pictures put into books!
First up - pick out some pictures. I am way behind and currently working on my half marathon from Sept. 2008, Christmas Tree cutting from Nov. 2008, and Christmas 2008.
I started with the half marathon pictures and separating the pictures into starting line, mid race, and finish. The page I worked on first was the starting line.
I figured out which ones I wanted to put together on one page (4 of the 7) and then cut them to fit together. I added a few simple embellishments and stickers writing out "half marathon".
And its done! One page of my September half marathon complete. I totally wish I would do some grand page like I see in the magazines but I don't have the time, money or patience for that!
Here is another example of a page I did for a 5k I ran back in 2008. Sometimes I like to keep the Bib from the race and I found a way to incorporate it. Otherwise I just throw them away because usually they get all sweaty and deteriorated!
I'll have one more post next week about scrapbooking! Hope you enjoyed seeing a little bit of how I put stuff together! Happy Wednesday!
