I may have gone crazy today

I just noticed that yesterday was my 150th post on WCRG. Holy cow! It’s been quite a while, hasn’t it? Granted, my 150th post wasn’t the most uplifting or running related, but it’s still a milestone!

This morning started off with a pretty basic breakfast: Cinnamon Life, an apple, and coffee.

It felt really good sipping on coffee and watching the news. That ritual helps me focus and start out my day on the right note!

After a normal day at work, my coworker Jamie and I hustled down to Lincoln Park to make a mid-evening Barre Bee Fit class taught by my coworker Amanda!

I’ve been going to BBF classes fairly regularly for a few weeks now and I really do not have enough wonderful things to say about it. I mention it here and there but I have to say that it’s become a pretty important part of my fitness lately.

I go to about 2 classes a week at BBF and I already feel like it’s been making a huge impact on me!

After barre is when the crazy kicked in. I walked home, quickly rehydrated, and then got into a quick speed work run.

It was all in the name of using my newest, most favorite gadget…

It came in yesterday and I’ve been dying to use it.

Workout: 1 mile warm up plus 5×400

It sounds wonky and it is. I originally was supposed to do eight 400’s but by the time I got out it was pretty late. So I just did 400s until the tiny sane part in my brain decided it wasn’t safe to be in my own little music blaring world.

This was also the first time I’ve done any pace work off a treadmill and I hate to say it (no I don’t): nailed it!

10:16, 2:07, 1:56, 1:55, 1:52, 1:51.

My everything was killing me by the end but I wish I could have gone on to do all eight. I’m curious if I could have kept those negative splits up!

It’s now time to dive into bed. This crazy athletic day means I get to sleep in a bit tomorrow!

Question: how do you track your runs?

  1. Congrats on nailing the intervals! Better to get some run in when you don’t have the time to do a full piece. But thats great!
    How do I track my runs? I use runkeeper as a log. I use Endomondo for GPS tracking for hard runs and intervals. And I use my stopwatch for all runs!
