One of my current goals is to get faster! I really want to break 4 hours in the marathon, but I have actually gotten slower in the past year rather than faster?!
I don’t really like speed work, but I think it’s because I haven’t given it enough of a chance. This morning I tried a speed work-out on the treadmill. I ended up doing an easier w/o than I planned, but it’s better than nothing:
10 minute warm-up
1 mile at 7.5 mph
2 min rest
.5 mile at 7.5 mph (I meant to do another full mile here, but couldn’t pull it out)
.5 at~ 6.2 mph
.5 mile at 7.5 mph
.5 mile between 4mph and 6.2 mph
.5m at 7.5
cool down walk
Woo! I was drenched in sweat after this!! I hope it gets easier as I do more speed work 🙂
I wanted to do some abs, but I was too wet with sweat and it got me freezing so I rinsed off in the shower and am icing my knee before anything else.
Breakfast was overnight oats with: container of strawberry Chobani, 1/3c oats, chia seeds, soy milk and this morning I added blubes and a bit more milk.
I also packed my lunch today. Since losing my job, I am blogging, freelance writing and job searching from home. This means I have too much access to the kitchen and handfuls of crackers or cereal are a daily occurrence. I made a meal plan last night and packed my lunch this morning. I’m hoping all this planning keeps me on track!
Happy Monday 🙂 See you in a bit!
