Whew!! Speed work is NO JOKE! I decided to do some mile repeats yesterday and I didn't like it. (I may like it when I start running faster) but it was HARD. I decided that since my 5K PR is 7:52/mile, I would try to run one mile hard at 7:30, then sloooooowly jog for 3 minutes, one mile hard at 7:30, jog slow for 3 minutes, repeat until I hit 4 miles. Easier said than done. I did the first mile in 7:33, jogged for 3 minutes and decided I was done. But, I remembered that I told you guys that I would push through. So, I still did the run, just a little different. The second mile I ran at a normal pace (9:00), mile 3 I did in 7:45, mile 4 8:54. I averaged an 8:19 pace for a 4.11 mile run. Better than I have ever ran so that was good, but I'm feeling sore today. Wow, sorry I just wrote a novel on my 4 mile run. I looked at this while I was running. Aren't the trees so pretty??
We are having a little Fall Kick-Off/Pumpkin Carving Contest this weekend and I made these cute signs for our food. Aren't the precious?
I am loving this fall weather and just may bust out my new fall skirt I got at Goodwill :)
Have an awesome Wednesday and get in a good workout :)
