3 miles of speed work.
Well, the headache I had all day yesterday was still lingering when I got out of bed early this morning, as was the rain and cool temperatures. But, I still managed to head over to the high school track to do my workout. Unfortunately, when I got there the gate was chained and I couldn't get in to use the track. I guess since school's out, I might have to figure out an alternative. In the meantime, for today's run I just came home and used the treadmill to do my 3 X 1600 repeats. I warmed up for a few minutes with some walking, followed by a slow jog, then increased the speed and ran at a faster pace for 1 mile, then slowing to a jog for about 4 minutes, then repeat. When I finished I had actually gone a little over 3 1/2 miles, including the recovery portions. After my run, I did level 1 of JM's Yoga Meltdown. My headache feels a little better now, but I am tempted to go back to bed. I guess I'll finish my chocolate-banana-peanut butter smoothie and go take a shower instead. :)
