Good morning and happy Friday!
How is it already Friday?! Oh, who cares…it’s FRIDAY!!
Yesterday was a SUPER day! I had a great, productive day at work. For lunch, I had a very filling brown rice/veggie mix and two hard boiled eggs.
After work, it was time for Speedwork! And I was pumped! After crashing and burning on Tuesday, and then skipping Wednesday (if you hadn’t noticed), I was ready!
On the schedule was 200s and 300s. We did 300m out; 300m back; 200m out; 200m back, and I was assigned to do that “set” three times. With my girls in tow, we showed that speedwork who was boss! It felt great, and I felt strong throughout the entire workout.
My splits were as follows:
- 300m: 1:28
- 300m: 1:24
- 200m: 0:52
- 200m: 0:49
- 300m: 1:34
- 300m: 1:22
- 200m: 0:56
- 200m: 0:54
- 300m: 1:37
- 300m: 1:31
- 200m: 0:58
- 200m: 0:53
I worked hard for that, and I am proud of it! I still need to focus more on consistency, but I feel like I’m seeing little bits of improvement here and there.
After we finished, we grabbed our free smoothies and chatted for a bit. I really am growing quite fond of these girls! 🙂
I stopped by Chipotle on the way home to grab a veggie salad. Chipotle just never gets old…
And, I apologize to the people standing directly in front of or behind me in line because I know I did not smell pleasant. Sorry! 😉
I then spent some time watching The Mindy Project and foam rolling.
