Our group did a new-to-us workout called The Kennedy. Our coach (and one of my best friends) is dating Olympic runner Bob Kennedy. He reviewed our training schedule and contributed this gem! I am always nervous when a workout has a name.
I did a 4.5 mile warm-up
5 x 1200m at 5k pace with 200m recovery (The short 200m recovery is what makes this workout tricky!)
(Goal: 5:08. Actual: 5:08, 5:08, 5:08, 5:08, 5:03) I have never in my life been this consistent on the track. It was tough, but felt so good!
I rushed home after track to take Charlotte to the vet for her inner-ear surgery. I was still super sweaty and both of us were super nervous.
After dropping Charlotte off, I went home to shower. Fleet Feet gives out track tanks each season. I LOVE the new one and of course I had to wear it the day we got it! (Side note: my lips and teeth look huge in the pic, lol!)
I usually run hills in Percy Warner Park with friends on Wednesdays. They are all out of town this week. I woke up feeling determined and in need of some running redemption after my last long run and decided to run an unplanned tempo.
Y’all, I had my best tempo run in months!!! It’s just what I needed. (Garmin 620)
As you’ve probably noticed, I started a Periscope account and I’m starting to have a lot of fun with it! One common concern I’ve heard from others is that they don’t know what to talk about for their scopes. Well, Katie at Mom’s Little Running Buddy to the rescue. She created the #PeriscopeProject! It’s a 14-day schedule that gives you a topic per day. It’s super simple. Make sure to use the hashtag #PeriscopeProject in your title and sync to twitter so others can find you.
When you watch a Scope, make sure to tap your screen to show love with hearts! You can do this for live broadcasts AND replays! <3 <3 <3
If you start the Periscope Project, let me know so I can follow you!
Earlier this week, we talked about our worst run. What’s the best run you’ve had lately?!
