Workout Log 2-21-17

Well, today was interesting. Boyfriend still has the flu, of course. I’m still standing. Go, immune system! I decided to stay nearby and used the apartment gym instead of the gym we subscribe to. I usually just use it for the sauna and the occasional treadmill run; figured the weight situation would be OK. It was not OK. A bunch of dumbbell sets lacked its partner and the complete sets that were available were a bit too heavy for me. What’s that I hear? Is that the struggle bus?  

Or, Failing, Flailing from Streetlight Manifesto?

So, I just did some cardio this morning. I was really looking forward to upper body, but we will rebuild! I’m doing the Free Press International Half in October anyway, so I may as well keep my cardiovascular conditioning in check. I averaged 4.7 mph, several intervals of 6.0 mph and some walking intervals. I averaged a 4.5 mph jog during my half marathon, and frankly moving your body 13.1 miles is already an accomplishment so my only real goal is to match my previous average. Well, guess I get to smash my face into a bowl of protein oatmeal.

Hey Liech try to answer this: Two trains, Train A and Train B. Simultaneously depart Station A and Station B. Station A and Station B are 252.5 Miles apart from each other. Train A is moving at 124.7 MPH towards Station B, and Train B is moving at 253.5 MPH towards Station A. If both trains departed at 10:00 AM it is now 10:08 How much longer until both trains pass each other? [No cheating darling]

Liech // idk im not even gonna try to answer this cause i really dont know, that would require mun to think and she doesn’t want to, so idk but if anybody has the answer let me know, not that i will really care

This Day in Disney History

January 15, 1975: Space Mountain, sponsored by RCA, opens at the Magic Kingdom.

This space-themed coaster was the first of it’s kind at the Disney theme parks, and with the popularity of the attraction, it has been duplicated at every Magic Kingdom style Disney park around the world! Space Mountain also has the distinction of being the oldest operating roller coaster in the state of Florida!

Since you’re in the dark almost 100% of the time, the ride definitely feels like you’re going faster than you really are! The cars travel at a stately 28.7 mph, so if you’re traveling with anyone that might be a little fearful of it’s roller coaster status, that fact might set their minds at ease. 

he tastes of asphalt and gunpowder.

It’s hard to remember small beginnings when you’ve created an empire.

Indy Mini W6D2 - SPEED 12 X 400

Target pace: 8:00
Actual pace: 8:00

There was a “real feel” of 9, 17 mph winds, and flurries after work. Treadmill!! I didn’t really want to do this run on a treadmill, but I felt like I didn’t really have a choice.

SO I did a 1.5 mile warm up, 0.25 at 7.5 mph, recovery of ~0.20 walking/jogging, repeated 12 times, then did a 1.25 mile cool down run and 0.25 walk!

I was nervous to do the repeats at 7.5 mph; I thought I couldn’t hang. Turns out I can! I felt tired and wanted to quit towards the end, but I didn’t! I stayed strong and kept checking each one off and soon enough I was done! Once I got half way through I felt much better. I stopped and restarted the treadmill because it has an hour time limit and I didn’t want it to shut off on me.

I’m veryyyy happy with how this went! A strong start to speed work :)

I hope you all had good Tuesday’s! :)


Why hello there speed work, (kind of) nice to see you again!

I decided last night that I was going to use my office gym after work to do some speed work. I knew the weather was going to be crappy so running outside wasn’t really an option. Also,
that way when I’m done I can go home and eat dinner and relax right away!

I did 6x400 tonight with 400 recovery and a 1 mile warm up/cool down. I did the first two repeats at 7 mph, the second two at 7.1, and the final two at 7.2.

These felt tough, but good! It’s nice to remind myself that I can run fast when I want to. I definitely could have done more tonight, but I also don’t want to jump right back into long speed work. And I’m not marathon training right now, so I can give myself a break!

I have my eyes on a “Gingerbread Pursuit” 4 mile race on December 12 in Fort Wayne. I’ve never run a 4 mile race so an automatic PR, right? ;) it seems like it could be fun though! I’m waiting to sign up just in case something comes up, but more than likely I’ll be running it. I’m going to be training for it for the next 4 weeks anyway! Something to motivate me :)

Happy Tuesday!
