Last night was another round of team track workouts. It was much cooler and there was a hint of fall in the air. I had anticipated doing 1000m repeats last night but when coach suggested mile repeats, I jumped on board.
2 mile warm up
1x800m at tempo pace
3x1600m at tempo pace with 1 min recovery
2 mile cool down
We use a sheet called VDOT to calculate tempo, interval and repetition pace and it really comes in handy. You just put in a race time and distance and then it calculates what you should pace you should be running. A vdot calculator can be found here!
1x800m = 3:30
3x1600m = 6:55, 6:47, 6:49. I felt really good on the 1600m repeats. My goal was a 7 min/mile pace but everything just came together and my legs wanted to go faster.
Last week when I posted the ten random things about myself, I mentioned that I love to scrapbook. I decided to post a mini series on scrapbooking including how to get started and ideas to help preserve those previous (running and every day) memories.
First off I thought I would just show you my collection of completed scrapbooks. I keep them in my closet and off the floor so that they wont get damp and ruin the photos. So far I have 11 in total, including one dedicated to my four years of college basketball.
Also I wanted to share a part of the scrapbook that Brian made me! He did such a great job putting it all together! Here is the last page where he asked me to marry him!!
Recently, Caroline of Boston Runner posted about making a scrapbook for her sister of her wedding. She did a really great job so go check it out!
Next week I will talk about how to get started!! Happy Wednesday!
