Last week, I headed to a track in south Minneapolis to workout with the YWCA Endurance Sports group. It was to be my first track workout in about a year and a half. The workout normally takes place when I have class, but it was Spring Break last week. On my "exotic" Spring Break last week, I went to the park 3 times, to the library, watched Henry bike around the block, and got my oil changed with my boys:
First time outside on his Christmas bike (showing off his sweet tats).
90 minutes at the car dealership. (We picked up the toys and magazines before we left.)
Goose, meet Laurie. Laurie, goose.
Instructions unclear. I'll just run fast.
We ran the first 3 intervals pretty similarly - I'd take the lead about half a lap in, and then he'd stay right on my tail. It was a good push/pull situation for both of us. I pulled a bit farther ahead in the 1600 and 1200, but still, it was a good pairing. Here were my splits for my ladder:
1600: 5:28 (my 800s were 2:44 and 2:44)
I thought I was running the shorter intervals much faster, but when you look at my average lap pace for each interval, they're pretty similar except for the 400s:
I learned that BFF Devon is usually at this workout, so Nicole and I took a sad-face selfie to send to him post-workout:
And then Nicole snapped a photo of me on my 3-lap cool down:
Awkward. That's pretty standard.
