6 miles speed
After a fun-filled weekend of going out, drinking, and little sleep, I was dreading the track this morning. Dreading it. I peeked at my plan last night praying for something semi-easy but instead saw 3×1600 at 7:11 pace. Ugh, mile repeats…my nemesis. I took the liberty of increasing my “rest period” between intervals to 400m instead of 1 minute.
1st interval: 7:11. Right on target.
2nd interval: 7:08. Really?!
3rd interval: 7:05. Huh?! I should eat junk food, not sleep, and drink beer more often! I can’t believe I wanted to skip this workout when my alarm went off this morning.
Onto more fun stuff! I’m totally milking this bachelorette recap into 2 posts, so let’s begin with Friday 😉
Friday night was relaxing…sitting around chatting, dinner, more chatting (and drinking), and then going to the hotel bar later on. My legs felt great despite the 20 (very early) miles that morning and I even managed to stay up until 2:00AM! Some pictures…
More pictures tomorrow! Off to work for a very long day. It’s going to take me a few days to fully recover from the weekend…just in time for the 4th of July!
I’ve had some surprisingly good runs the morning after being up all night with the baby, it makes no sense to me sometimes!
I’m very impressed that you stayed up until 2am after running 20 miles that morning!

Love it!!!! Maybe you will inspire me to start running! 🙂
bachelorette parties are fun…and exhausting! glad that your body was nice to you this morning for your speed workout!
you are seriously a rock star!!!! those mile times are amazing! and the party looks SO FUN!!!!!
Don’t you just love when your workouts turn out to be that great? I suck when I wake up not wanting to do something. I start making excuses and then don’t kick my own butt. Good for you! ;o)
I love mile repeats, especially when you surprise yourself. I hate tempo runs!
