There is nothing better than coming home from a tough track workout and having a delicious BLT sandwich and a huge side of watermelon. It may be hot out but nothing beats some good summer eats!
Last night it was hot and humid but I still braved the track for my run clubs workout. Running in the summer heat is so different that the winter or spring. My stomach always gets kind of funny feeling when I run in the heat, but thankfully it didn't cause any real problems last night and I was able to finish the workout.
2x1600m at threshold pace
2x800m at interval pace
2x400m at race pace
I have done many different ladder workouts, but this was the first one where the paces got faster with each set. Here's how it went:
1600s - 7:07, 7:10
800s - 3:14, 3:17
400s - 1:29, 1:25
By the end I was soaking in sweat - a shower never felt so good and the watermelon just hit the spot! What a difference in post run foods - I remember when I was chowing down on hot tomato soup and grilled cheese back in March!
Does your favorite post run foods change with the seasons? I am loving the watermelon this summer! I just can't get enough!
Have a great day!
