There are some words that I can just NEVER seem to spell correctly. No matter how many times I study them, repeat them to myself, write them down… they just never stick. Here are a few of them::
-Definitely -Supposed -Bureau -Barely -accessibility
-anything that requires a “double letter”– stopped, prepped, hopped,
-and anything that ends with “-el” or “-le” (I seriously never know which one it is. pathetic).
They say that for speed work, your legs are best prepped (did I spell it correctly??) later in the day. WOW they were right. 6am speed workout was just about as awful as you can imagine it to be.
-1 mile warmup, 4 x 800meters, 1 x 600meters, 1 x 400meters, 1 x 200meters, 1 mile cooldown.
-I also did my Beach Body Challenge Ab Circuit which was great! Will probably do it again later…
So why do speed workouts suck so much? They literally terrify me. I hate doing them, hence I never do them. I will do tempo runs, or cut-downs, but actual speed workouts with a designated distance and rest time in between…And what is so funny is that we KNOW how good they are for us!! Every running book/workout magazine tells us about all the benefits of incorporating intervals/speed into our runs. So why don’t I do it?!?! Because I am a scared wimp. That’s why. I am really working on changing that…. more speed in my life! Just maybe not at 6am. I think my legs need more movement throughout the day.
I am eating 2 pieces of peanut-butter toast with a banana on top and it is delicious! Yay for Andrea eating bigger Meals!!
In about 8 mins I have a Skype Group Meeting for my final Statistic’s project with my group. I look like death. I am still sweating sitting at my kitchen table. Oh well! At least you can’t smell via Skype… right? I will post a picture just to show you how disgusting I am. I know you are curious.
-Get ready for some weekend plans in a little bit!! I am overly excited for the weekend and already making plans : )
Do you guys like speed work? How often do you do it? What is your favorite speed work?
