What a Wonderful Workout!!

My workout yesterday went amazing! Especially because it was insanely windy and a bit cold. The weather was in a limbo between cold and warm. It was cold enough for a long sleeve but wear shorts. Too cold for just short sleeve but a bit too warm for long sleeve after the warmup. Probably a perfect day for arm warmers. Those are at school.

Workout: 6 x 800m with 2:00 rest in between

Warm-up: 1 mile

Goal times for 800m were 3:18-3:20 which is 6:36-6:40 pace

splits went:

  • 3:15
  • 3:15
  • 3:15
  • 3:15
  • 3:16
  • 3:17

So 6:30 pace, 6:32 pace and 6:34 pace.

I’m feeling great, that was at 5k pace. So to put it in perspective for you and I,

  • 6:30 pace 5k = 20:11
  • 6:34 pace 5k = 20:24

So EXTREMELY close to breaking 20 which is my goal!!! How exciting!!

Cool down: 1 mile

Total mileage for the day: 5 miles

It also helped I was rockin’ some awesome spandex shorts from Val’s Customized.


Q: Do you own any funky training clothes?

I love spandex and crazy designs!!

Q: How do you celebrate a good workout?

I devoured some skittles on my drive home!!
