Monday morning at the track with repeats and a sunrise.
Now that the sun comes out later in the morning, it’s much harder to get up and moving. 0% of me wanted to run speed this morning, but I sucked it up–and had a great workout and saw a pretty sunrise!
the workout: 2, 2 x 1.5mi, 1 x 1mi, 1
I ran 6 100m sprints before the repeats to shake my legs awake. For the 1.5 mile & mile repeats, I aimed for a 7-minute pace, and I was right on! It felt comfortably hard, and I was proud of myself for being so consistent!
When I got back to my apartment, I put my shoes away (by kicking them off in the shoe pile by my door) and noticed that this pile had 4 pairs of running shoes, 1 pair of TOMs, 1 pair of flats, and 2 pairs of sandals. I am not sure how that happened because I distinctly remember clearing this pile last week. At home, our laundry room always accumulated mass amounts of footwear from the five members of my family, but I always denied being the problem one. Living alone teaches you things!
Three great things happened today:
- One of my favorite Jesus songs came on the radio on my way to school.
- Bre brought s’more cookie bars to our pediatrics class! Since i had a real campfire s’more over the weekend, my taste buds were in the position to compare, and I actually preferred the s’more cookie bar! Most of this preference is because I like solid chocolate more than melted chocolate, though I do like burnt marshmallows.
- Walking to my car after class, I saw two cyclists riding their bikes up the parking garage. Judging from their fluorescent shirts and road bikes, they were legitimately in the middle of a hill workout in the parking garage.
Campfire marshmallows: burnt to a crisp or perfectly toasted?
Most fun thing you did over the weekend?
