First and foremost, the winner of my Nuun Giveaway — selected at random — is:
Heather at Junk Miles
Big thanks to Nuun for sending enough product that I could try it out and give some away too. If you haven’t already, I highly recommend that you check it out. This is good stuff.
We had 8 x 800 Yasso repeats on the schedule last night. We didn’t hit the track this time, but used a quiet residential loop where we measured out the distance and used a fire hydrant as the 400m marker and a mailbox as the 800m marker. We had a 200m recovery jog between each repeat.
Goal: 4:00 per 800.
Here’s how they went down:
4:02 – okay, warming up
4:07 – uhhh, way too slow
3:49 – alright, made up for that last one
3:52 – half way there, feeling good
3:39 – who knew I could run this fast?
3:36 – where did that come from?
3:40 – suffering for the last one, but hanging on
3:30 – SAY WHAT?!
Average: 3:46 per 800
I felt fantastic! Okay, I felt a little barftastic towards the end of that last one, but what a rush to see 3:30 on my watch.
Yesterday I was thrilled to find out that my baby (18) sister was selected as a Torch Bearer when the Olympic Torch Relay passes through Barrie, Ontario (just north of us) on December 30th. She entered a contest through Coca Cola and SOGO Active, where she shared her fundraising involvement for Run4Rett and her goal of running a 5K. How cool is that?
