This afternoon it was time for another round of Intervals for Lunch. I decided to switch things up for a shorter, harder overall effort.
On the menu: 4 x 1000m
(1) 4:35 – I am never eating chocolate again.
500m recovery interval @ 3:14
(2) 4:34 – This hurts. How did I ever run a 5K at this pace? FASTER than this pace??
500m recovery interval @ 3:15
(3) 4:35 – Wheeze! Wheeze! Wheeze! (wow, nice and consistent though!)
500m recovery interval @ 3:08 (+ emergency gas station pitstop)
(4) 4:24 – Almost done, PUSH PUSH PUSH (die die die).
Ideally, I would have liked to complete 5 repeats, but I just didn’t have time and had to get back to the office. I feel good about this workout. It was a hard effort, but I know I’m capable of faster on a good day… perhaps on a day that does not follow a 3-day junk food binge…
Both TMB @ Racing With Babes and Anne @ Asthma and the Gift of Running were kind enough to bestow upon me the Sunshine Award! What a pleasant and welcome gift on this dreary February day. Thanks, ladies!
It’s my pleasure to pass this award on to the following bloggers, selected for leaving the first comment on each of my last 12 posts. (I know Lacey is laughing because I am obsessed with being “FIRST!” comment on her posts, lol!)
I hope it brings a ray of sunshine to your day!
