I ran 6 x 400's at a 7:24 pace with 400's in between at 10:00 pace for recovery. After the 6 I felt like I had an extra smidgen to give so I ran one last 400 at a 6:42 pace. That's the furthest I've run at that speed, definitely. In fact, that may be the first time I've ever attempted 9 mph on the treadmill at all. Woo-hoo!
So back to the cow in the gym. I'm plugging away, doing my sprints, when I catch the Chick-fil-A mascot in the corner of my eye. I haven't been to Chick-Fil-A in years but when I see a giant cow in a red shirt I know what's up. So he's there with his buddy and they are passing out free samples in the gym. During one of my sprints, I actually had to
Anyway, after that I had a great day with the hubs. The crazy thunderstorm weekend turned out to be...80 degrees and sunny? It is the same forecast for today so we are pool-hunting! There has got to be one around here somewhere....
I need suggestions for speed workouts. What do you do for sprints/intervals?
I've only done a few speed workouts. 400's at basically as fast as I think I can go, and then some "pyramid runs" where I go faster and faster and then bring the speed back down.
Do you think gyms should allow fast food restaurants to give out samples?
I'm really against this. It's distracting from the workout, and I think that within a gym a healthy lifestyle should be encouraged, not fast food.
**Random Side Note--if any of you drink Emergen-C (or want to start) they have free samples on their website. I signed up for a few and they came within about 10 days. They have Vitamin C, obviously, but lots of other vitamins too and they are pretty tasty.
