Happy first day of Fall!! This post should be called “Track Tuesday and I Need To Stop Buying Pumpkins”, but I digress. Let’s start with today’s speed work!
New GU flavor: Caramel Macchiato! If Espresso and Salted Caramel had a baby, it would taste like this. It’s SO good!
Nashville received the Fall memo and we had awesome cool temps for track!
Gotta love when you show up to track to find baracades…doh! I got them cleared and we had a great workout.
First day running in a sleeve…Charlotte wanted to be in the photo, too:)
4.25 Mile warm-up
Drills and strides
400 (goal: 1:52) (actual: 1:47) The cool temps made me feel fast. I adjusted and dialed it back for the rest of the workout!)
800 (goal: 3:44) (actual: 3:42)
1200 (goal: 5:35) (actual: 5:35)
1600 (goal: 7:27) (actual: 7:25)
1200 (goal: 5:35) (actual: 5:33)
800 (goal: 3:44) (actual: 3:43)

(All done with a 400 recovery lap between)
1 mile cool down
In honor of the first day of fall and our cooler weather, I did a little pumpkin/corn stalk shopping…
and stopped by one of my favorite stores, The Iron Gate to do a little home shopping.
Driving home with a car full of corn stalks:)
I added a few more white little pumpkins to the house.
Then I came home to start a big pot of vegetarian tortilla soup! I will share the recipe later this week!
What’s your speed work this week?
Have you started decorating for Fall or Halloween yet? Please tell me I’m not the only one;)
What’s your favorite GU flavor? Do you mix it up or stick to one flavor?
