It was done on the treadmill, so I could control the pace, and essentially I matched each length of "recovery pace" (6.0) with the same distance at a hard/tempo pace (7.1-7.4).
I really loved this! When I do longer intervals (i.e. a mile) I need a longer recovery time, so this worked. One mile slow, one mile fast. 3/4 mile slow, 3/4 mile fast, and so on down the line. I can't remember sweating this much EVER on the treadmill. That's always a sign of a good workout to me!
Since you were so good and read all of my running nonsense you may now proceed to the good stuff.
Lately two of my favorite snacks have been PB and popcorn. It was only a matter of time before I figured out how to combine the two.
EASIEST RECIPE EVER:
-Pop microwave popcorn
-melt peanut butter
-drizzle melted PB on popcorn
-add in whatever you love- I used dried cranberries and some flax seeds
I promise you will not regret the 84 seconds it take you to make this. It really remind me of those popcorn balls I used to get trick-or-treating when I was a kid. Except they taste better, they're healthier, you can make one serving at a time (portion control!), and did I mention the PEANUT BUTTER?
Where do you do speedwork--treadmill, track, or outside with a Garmin?
If I have a designated "speed" day I definitely prefer the treadmill because it's easier for me to track my pace.
What is your favorite way to eat PB?
Off a spoon? Seriously, I love it any way I can get it! I love it in oatmeal, bread, and now popcorn!!
