I was supposed to join a few of my fave runner/blogger friends for a speed work session this morning, but I had to bail last night because I wasn’t going to make it in time. I asked Margot aka The Faster Bunny (that’s her blog name!) to tell me what to do.
Note #2: Margot obviously doesn’t know I am NOT the Faster Bunny, maybe I could pass for the Easter Bunny, but that’s it.
I have never legitimately done speed work. I tried Yassos I think once before but didn’t really shoot for a time, just attempted to go faster than usual.
Since I wasn’t at a track I ran half a mile around a big block. Recovered, then went back where I came from. I did this 6 times. I’m sure it looked really weird to passersby, but I’m used to that.
The first two 800s were brutal. I called Margot and left a voicemail screaming, “I am NOT the faster bunny!!!!!!!”
Then, I headed home to celebrate Waffle Wednesday! Remember when I used to eat waffles every Wednesday
and make a joke about how it sounded like awful Wednesday?
I really wish I could make protein waffles, but the last two times they’ve been a disaster. I will try again soon, but for now I have Kashi waffles with PB&J, chia seeds and naner. I filled the protein void with a big bite of Ben’s egg sandwich.
I thought it was going to be crappy granola, but it was good!
Pros: Portion control, Easy to take on the go, tastes good
Cons: Not as much protein as other greek yogurts, Too expensive even on sale
Question: Favorite granola?
Bonus Question: Ever done speed?
*Speed work, I meant speed work…
