Happy “Over the Hump” Day everyone! Can’t believe it’s already the middle of the week.
Yesterday, knowing my need to have things on a list to get them done, I created a 6 week training plan to get me ready for the PGH Half Marathon. Yes, I know you’re thinking “geez 6 weeks is short”, but keep in mind I just ran a half almost a week ago. I know I have the stamina, now it’s time to hone in my speed!
Today’s workout was 8 x 400 repeats. I had originally read it as “4 x 800” repeats, good job dyslexia! Remembering how much I despise 400s from my time on the track team, I whipped out my new shoes to motivate me.
I think they worked, because I didn’t hate my workout.
It definitely wasn’t a long run on the beach on a sunny day, but it wasn’t horrible either.
Time/mileage Speed 0 – 5:00 6.0 mph 0.25 miles 7.8 mph (around 7:45 pace) 0.10 mile 3.5 mph
It took me about 30 minutes with warmup and cooldown. Definitely a hot sweaty mess by the end.
I think my new shoes helped! What do you think?
Need some new music to boost your run or workout? Well Madonna is at it again! Here’s my favorite song off her new album.
Have a wonderful Wednesday! Bust a move 😉
Question for the Day:
What music motivates you?
