I wasn’t terribly excited for my track workout tonight, but I did want to get outside and run. 5 x 1k’s did not sound fun tonight … if I’m being honest. Those are hard. Give me 200 or 400 repeats any day. Give me hills. Something …
…but the plan called for 5 x 1k’s @ 5k pace and that was what I was going to do.
5 pm hit and I’m off to the locker room to change, when I discover something very important missing from my favoritist Lululemon gym bag … MY SHOES!!! ACCCKKKKKK!!!! How could I forget my shoes? It’s track tonight! I need to be fast.
I’ve already changed and now I have to walk out to my car in search for a spare pair in the trunk (I always try and keep at least a couple of trusty Brooks in the trunk).
Ummmm ….. shoot. I guess I have to wear my dress shoes out to the car?! Nice. Real nice Gina. (please – oh please – oh please … let me just sneak out …)
Can’t I just click my heels and make my running shoes appear?
ONE – TWO – THREE:
These trusty Brooks Launch helped me complete my track workout tonight.
2 miles warm-up
5 x 1k @ 5k pace (7:08, 7:01, 7:02, 6:53, 7:05)
1 mile cool down
7 miles total. 1:01. Average pace of 8:42.
***Overall, I felt good about my 1k splits. Those suckers are toughies. Not to mention, it was raining and I was soaked by the time I was finished. Thanks to my friend Judy for coming along for the run!!***
ps … I didn’t quite make it out of work without one of my co-workers spotting these gems. OOPS. 😉
