I got up this morning and met Julia at the track. She was going to do a “ladder” interval workout: 400, 800, 1200, 1600, 1200, 800, 400. I wanted to do 4 x 1600 with 90 seconds rest. And we both followed our plans.
When Julia showed up, she said that she just stopped to talk to David Thompson (rockstar local triathlete who I MIGHT have a man-crush on) who was running on Summit, so she said that this photo would show her “just-got-to-touch-David-Thompson-glow.” Nice one Julia.
Sporting the “hot pepper” sports bra!
5:32 (2:43, 2:49)
5:29 (2:44, 2:45)
5:27 (2:44, 2:43)
5:27 (2:42, 2:45)
5:28.75 / 1600 average
My times were good and they were pretty consistent. But the MOST IMPORTANT THING was that I was able to get my puny ass out there for a 4th 1600 - THAT was the key to the workout! And I was able to get that 4th interval done because Julia was out there with me. Thanks for the workout, Julia!
Shortly after I finished, while Julia still had a few intervals left, I snapped this beat-up photo of me:
Oh hi, Vein of Approval! Nice to see you!
