Happy Friday! 🙂
Friday mornings are the best run mornings. I think it’s the adrenaline rush of knowing that the weekend is almost here.
I set out for 6 miles this morning then decided a mile in to turn it in to an interval run. I had a mile warm up followed by half mile intervals at half marathon pace (or what used to be my half marathon pace) then a mile cool down.
My legs are still recovering, so trying to hold a 8:15ish pace wasn’t a pleasant experience, but it wasn’t impossible either. I just took it one half mile at a time. I’m hoping to return to the track on Tuesday with T3 and work out a plan on building my speed back up. I have a very vague goal of hitting a sub-1:50 half marathon time in the spring. It was just one of those random thoughts that came to me this morning, so we’ll see.
The run was hot and sweaty, but the cool shower afterwards had me craving a hot bowl of oats for breakfast.
In the mix:
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup soy milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin
- chopped dates
- pinch of salt
- Good Run Granola
- 1/2 pear
- honey peanut butter
Not bad for a post-run treat. 🙂
