I love doing speed work on the treadmill. It forces me to go at the exact pace without slowing down.
I did a warm up and cool down with about a 10 min pace recovery in between repeats with the mill on 1% incline.These were my splits.
The last one was the best. I could feel the burn, I loved it! Yes I think I may be (completely) a little crazy.
I set the speed and I just ran. I focused on form and breathing. And you know what? The last one was the best because even though I could feel the pain I know my legs had more to give. So either I could have done more repeats or gone faster. But I didn't want to over do it. It's all about quality and not quantity these next two weeks with the See Jane Run Half on Saturday and then Seattle Rock n Roll Marathon next Saturday.
So I got a haircut 2 weeks ago (cut about 5 inches off) and had a feather put in it just for fun. I would like to think it's helped with me speed. Gave me a little bit of flight. What's the saying... Light as a feather, stiff as a board. Oh wait that was from the movie The Craft.
Anyway what do you think?
Feather...Thumbs up or down?
Today I also had a movie date with this handsome little man.
After the movie we played some air hockey. He beat me by 1 point!
Tomorrow is back to work and then another 3 day weekend!
Hope your Wednesday was as awesome as mine!
