Track Tuesday: West Coast Edition
First, Pasadena keeps their tracks on lockdown! I logged some mileage just running around the perimeter fencing before finally finding an open track.
Here’s the workout:
1 x 800m (400m recovery) Goal: 3:10 Actual: 3:10
1 x 600m (400m recovery) Goal: 2:13 Actual: 2:14
1 x 400m (400m recovery) Goal: 1:29 Actual: 1:29
2 x 200m (200m recovery) Goal: 0:44 Actual: 0:43, 0:44
Takeaways: After last week’s faster time trial, my goal paces are faster. This workout was rough!! Also, solo track is significantly harder…I missed my friends!
I found the cutest coffee shop…Lavender & Honey
Soy cafe au lait and peanut butter, banana, and honey toast.
Followed by pool time…
Lunch on the terrace. Salads are a lot more fun with a side of frites!
I stalked the baby ducks through the garden again. I’m kind of obsessed.
I checked out the local shopping scene.
Shopping and Boba…I’m so LA…ha! (Also, I’m wearing a fedora, because I still hadn’t showered. In my defense, I did go for a swim.)
We’ve been staying at the Langham this week. I thought you might want to see a few pics of the property.
For dinner, I had the yummiest butternut squash ravioli.
And of course, champagne…cheers!
Are you doing speed work this week? Share!
Are you fast when you run with friends? I felt like I had to work a lot harder to hit my splits during my solo track workout.
