Thursday Speed Class was b-r-u-t-a-l. We ran intervals, 1200, 800, 600, 400. Each getting 5 -10 seconds faster per lap. Uh, oxygen don't fail me now! Of course it was like 70 and very humid considering the thunderstorms had just stopped. But I did it and my last 400 had me at 1:91, thankyouverymuch. And just when we thought we were done, coach announced we would be doing 50m strides to "cool down." My quads are not pleased with me.
And they were even angrier at 4:45 when my alarm went off to get up to go running again. BTW, yay for Michelle suggesting we sleep in an extra 15 minutes on Friday. Whoot! We met for a warm, humid, albeit easy run of 4 miles. I needed to get the kinks out from the night before anyway.
Called the plumber and made arrangements to have our new water heater installed, new dishwashwer installed and our drains cleaned out. We are so high style these days with our clean drains and all. Then I headed out to purchase said dishwasher so he would have something to install. (thankfully, he'll pick out and purchase the hwh because I wouldn't even know where to start)
THEN, drug my tired self out of bed this morning for my long run. And brr! I wore shorts yesterday morning to run and a sleeveless top. This morning I had to bring out the tights and ls tops that I had put away for the season. Wind chill of 23 is dang cool for these parts. (and my parts!) It was windy and it was cool, but it was a great run. Michelle mapped out a new route for us that started with hills and ended, apparently, in Chicago it was so windy. But the best part was, it snowed!!! For reals y'all! We saw snowflakes in Dallas in March - the END of March. Will wonders never cease?
Hubs is playing in a hockey tourney this weekend. With a bunch of Canadians who came into town just for this tournament if you can believe that. They needed goalies and he was more than happy to oblige. I hope he's having fun!
Happy weekend y'all!
