Tuesday I had a successful speedworkout. I completed 5x400m with a 400m recovery jog in between. The splits are as follows:
My goal 5k pace is 7:24 so I felt pretty good about this. Considering I
haven't done speedwork in a few months, I comfortably met my goal. Now I
know I can do it and it is time to turn it up next week for more!
Also on Tuesday I received my winter running purchase from Running Warehouse! A balaclava (left) and a pair of decent winter gloves (right). I've only
been complaining about my winter gloves for months now. I'm excited to
give these gloves a try today! I will post a review of them once I've
given them a whirl a few times. I like the yellow color. You can see them from space!
I've also decided what I'm giving up for Lent this year. As I've
mentioned a bunch of times already, Toph is a vegetarian. I thought
since he already is one, it would be easy to give up meat for lent.
Yesterday I was traveling for work and had a really hard time finding a
menu item that was vegetarian. That prompted me to decide that I am
going to go vegetarian for lent. I toyed with the idea of going vegan
too, but decided that it would be a bad idea considering I just bought
groceries and most of them would go to waste. Lol. Next year, I'm going
vegan. Now THAT would be a challenge. :)
Tonight I'm meeting my running group for our 2nd attempt at a standard
Thursday night run. Snow is in the forecast so it could be interesting. I
brought my trail shoes and my running raincoat just in case. When the weather outside is less than perfect, do you still like to go out there and hit the pavement, or do you head to the treadmill? With the exception of extreme heat or pouring rain, I'll head outside! :)
