What I Wore Wednesday

by Heidi on May 2, 2012

It was a pretty blah Wednesday. Hectic. I woke up late. Didn’t have time to dry my hair because I couldn’t decide which skirt to wear. Just…m’eh. One of those days. You know how it goes.

Skirt: NY&Co
Top: Lilly Pulitzer
Shoes: JCrew
Necklace: Jcrew

I wasn’t feeling super creative this morning. I’ve been struggling with working out since hubs got home. We ran Monday night, last night I had a work event, and we were supposed to go running the AM but he doesn’t understand that while  I’m difficult to rouse in the morning, I do want to be a morning workout guru. And for him bragging about waking up at 4am for the past seven months, he sure isn’t trying very hard.

Tonight though, we’re popping over to a track shortly to do some ladder sprints. BAM!

800m warm up
1200m
800m
400m
200m
400m
800m
1200m
800m cd

All with about 1-2min rest between sets. should be about a 4 mile jaunt around the track. Normally I usually do 400m intervals (in form of Yasso 800′s for marathon training) at about 2-2:30 minutes each I’m hoping to do . I’m trying to get into the 8-9 min/mile range versus the 9-10 minute/mile range so I think workouts like this between now and June might actually help.

Hubs is focusing more on his 2 mile run for his upcoming PT test, so while I’m training for the Dover AFB half and the Zooma 10k in June with distances, he wants to focus more on speed which I can do. I need that too. So tonight? Speed workout it is!

Do you incorporate speed workouts into your training? If so, what’s your favorite??

    I try to add speed, although sometimes I just don’t end up doing it (like when working on longer distance for the marathon.) I like speed work though, especially getting out on the track.

    You’re super cute, lady!

    And I need to incorporate speed workouts into my training. I’ve kind of hit a lull in training, since I’m not really AIMING for anything just yet, and I want to get back in the swing of things. What’s the best way to learn about speedwork and the easiest way to incorporate it into training? -erin
