YTD: 250/600 miles for 2012
This past week, BLC & I have done an excellent job following our training schedule!
4 easy miles @ 10:30 min/mi with 2x400m strides @ 8:30 min/mi
(Tempo Run) Warmup mile @ 11:25 min/mi; 2×1600 tempo miles @ 9:38 & 9:11 min/mi; cool down mile @ 11:21 min/mi
I got a little over zealous during our tempo run (tempo miles were supposed to be @ 9:45 min/mi…oops) but I felt really, really good during every run this week. I think a big part of it is because I absolutely LOVE running on the track. Love, love, love!
Tomorrow BLC & I are running in the city for Summer Streets which I am pretty stoked about. For those of you who don’t know about Summer Streets, it occurs 3 Saturdays in the summer in Manhattan where Park Avenue is shut down to cars from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park from 7a-1p & there are activities like zip lining, climbing wall & local art. Pretty cool, huh?
Another fabulous Friday tidbit – my wardrobe during my tempo run was amazing!
I received two pairs of Aspaeris compression shorts from our Reach the Beach co-captain Jamie on Thursday morning because Aspaeris has agreed to be a product sponsor for our Reach the Beach relay team, “Better than GTL : RES Repeat”! They have generously provided each of us (women only – poor boys!) with some shorts to use during our training and the relay!
I have honestly been wanting to buy a pair FOREVER so I was super excited to try them out!
They look tiny but fit perfectly! I will admit, they were a little difficult to put on but once they were on – I have no more complaints! I honestly forgot that I was even wearing them.
Overall, I was super impressed with them & would recommend them for sure. & my legs feel fabulous today
I also wore another new item for our tempo run…
My Sweat Pink Ambassador race shirt!!
It was also awesome. I love the material…although I still sweat (pink) quite a bit.
Love my newly acquired running gear. & love running. & love the track. & love that it is Friday.
Love is in the air.
