3 Run 1, Week 18 (FIRST): Some Morning Speedwork
This morning I went to the local university track with my sister. (Yes, I drove home to see my family yesterday.)
We did a gentle-10 minute warmup, doing a few 400s to get ready before our speedwork began.
My sister accompanied me for the first lap of speedwork, & then ran about 6 more 400s or so at her own pace, with some walking in between each lap. Then she hung out & cheered me on as I finished my speedwork.
I was proud of her for getting up so early & running with me, & I think she surprised herself too for getting up so early & running outside in 35 degree weather. ;-)
I did 1.5 miles (or 6x400s) of speedwork, interspersing each fast 400 with a 400 of easy running. My total milege was probably somewhere around 4 miles or so.
We made a deal; for every lap of speedwork that I did, she had to run a lap. She still owes me 2 laps & I'm not going to let her forget about it any time soon. Hahahaha!
Wow, that was some workout. I'm fairly tired, but am not sure it's all from the workout: I only got 6 hours of sleep; there was a lot of late-night chatting & catching up to do amongst the ladies of the household. My mom & I didn't go to bed until 2 am!
It was a lot of fun, but I think tonight's going to be an early night! ;-)
