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