first speed work session completed (mostly) this morning

Prescribed work out:
5M, broken down as follows: 1M warm up, 2 x 1600m @ 8:06/M pace with 800m recovery jogs, 1M cool down.

Actual work out:
4.5M, broken down as follows: 1M warm up @ 10:00/M, 2 x 1600m @ 8:06/M pace with 1 800m recovery jog @ 10:00/M, 1M cool down @ 10:00/M.

Additional notes:
total time to complete 41:44 mins; burned 508 calories (according to treadmill); wore pink shoes, blurr shorts and Adidas red long sleeve. shoes felt too small. must have looked like I was working hard b/c I had a couple people looking at me funny. honestly I wasn’t about to go to pieces! no puking on the treadmill for me (see the season premier of The Biggest Loser Couples from Tues). was a bit difficult to get out of bed this morning but the knowledge that KT would be waiting for me got me up and going and I was on time for once! was a bit sleepy on the car ride but now I feel freakin’ awesome! I think remembering to eat before my work out helped. had 1/2 a banana and 1/4 of a bagel with peanut butter. getting into bed by 10:40pm was a good thing too. must shoot for 10:20pm though.

Holidays update:
there is about 5 or 6 runs I did over the holidays that need to go up yet. highlights include a 5K race, a run with my highschool English teacher and cross country coach JS which was a w.o.r.k.o.u.t. in 90km/h gusts along the bluffs!!! a run with little LH (she’s way faster than she thinks), and a few less exciting training runs.
twas the Christmas of fitness with ME receiving a Garmin of his very own, me gratefully receiving a new pair of tights (merci beacoup Daddio!), free weights (thank you MN and little LH), foam roller (thank you MN again) and a Cycleops Fluid Trainer for my bike (thank you ME!!). KB came over last night and taught me how to change a flat on my bike and helped me change my tire for the trainer. the tutorial was very much appreciated!

more later, when I remember my training log.
