This is my 1st speed workout today. I have never really had a chance to do outdoor speedwork. I found that the track across from my husband's high school was open to the public. After my 5 minute warm-up, I went out and nailed my 1st interval. But after I finished, I found out that I did not hit the start button on my Garmin during my warm-up before I started. Ooops!
Then I went out for another warm-up and then attempted my official recorded 800 meter interval. It was really tough to do two laps on the track. It was mentally a challenge for myself to accomplish. But I continued the workout one interval after another. By the time that I was done, I was happy to cool-down and finally finish. I was beat...done...and exhaused.
I definitely earned my day off tomorrow as Josh and I fly out to Boston during Memorial Day weekend for his step-brother's wedding. We are planning a 6 mile run along the Charles River in Cambridge. It will be a nice change of scenery.
Have a safe weekend!
