Time to list it up, and there is one thing from yesterday, so don't judge on my inability to post in a prompt manner.
1. Lunch at Abuelos, because yet another co-worker is leaving, which is sad because I heart her. It's official, all my favorite people have left the building :( But it was a fun and yummy lunch to celebrate a fantastic person!
2. Ed and I decided to get out of town this weekend to celebrate six years of making it through being married. We decided to celebrate with a last minute weekend getaway! Any guesses where we are going? I mean really, because I have no idea.
3. Katie and I met at the Park last night to do intervals after work. I am terrified of doing speed work outdoors because I always feel like I will suck. But guess what? We didn't suck. We did 4x800's, with a one mile warm up, 5 minutes between each 800 and about a 10 minute cool down. We felt pretty great about our run. Katie kept track of overall time and distance on her Garmin, I tracked only the intervals on mine.
Here are our interval stats:
Run Distance: 2.0 Miles
Average Pace: 7:48
Best Pace: 6:16 (score)
Calories Burned: 213
Our total distance was about 4.5 miles, I'm not sure on total time, hopefully I'll get those stats from Katie tonight since we are meeting at the park again for an easy run.
Even though I was nervous to do speed work outside, we were hitting my goal pace thanks to the handy dandy pace calculators I have been using. My goal interval training pace is between 7:30s and 7:50s for 800's. So last nights 800's weren't as fast as I would have liked, but hey, this is only my second week doing speed work, so I say not bad.
