Yesterday was a HARD day.
Today was a hard day. I honestly didn't know if I was going to make it through the day without bursting into tears right in the face of a co-worker.
It was like an emotional marathon...that never ended. Seriously it was like the day would never end.
It was a beautiful perfect fall day though, so I was very grateful for that.
I also have managed to make some small movement in some of my goals that I posted!
Yay, for happy things!
First. I actually ran my speed workout.
It was a bit of a close call with some of the first gross weather of the season, but, thanks to good running friend Erik and SUNSHINE! I got my tush out the door.
Then I croaked at my new paces.
I've decided to work on my 5k PR with a Christmas race as my goal.
Maybe the St. Martins jingle bell run? I heard a nasty rumor that they make you run through a field.
Ain't nobody got time for that!
My workout was 8 X 400 meters with 400 meters recovery.
My goal pace was 1:29.
Somehow that seemed MUCH faster than the 1:34 from my marathon training.
1:33, 1:30, 1:29, 1:28, 1:27, 1:29, 1:31, 1:28
I'll tell you what...that 1:27 just about killed me. I was amazed at the difference in how I felt running the 1:27 vs. 1:29. My legs and arms were all tingly and I was kind of wondering what was going on there...the 1:29 was hard, but there wasn't any tingling. Those two seconds...whew! They matter!
I also found two more geocaches, bringing my yearly total to 33:)
