Day 17 – Australian Open

Standard

January 17 – Day 17/31

Location: Treadmill at Inside Out Gym

Weather Notes: It feels like springtime!  67 degrees with on and off rain, and craaaazy winds.

Distance: 4 miles total, 2.5 miles running

Time: 35:00

Pace: Pyramid from 6.0 mph to 9.0 mph

Other Notes:  I’d like to get back to having some more difficult runs each week, since technically I am in training season.  Even though the Austin Half will be a fun run for me, I think it’s time to crack the whip on myself and start adding some speed and pace workouts back in!  So today I decided to do 10 x 400 repeats.  I waited around after morning clients for the good treadmill and got to work.  One lap at 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, 8.5, 9.0, 9.0, 8.5 and 8.0 with 200 m of walking in between.  Next week when I’m truly serious about the speed training, I’ll run all the intervals at 8.0 or faster – no need to jump right in on my first time back 🙂

I had the company of Serena Williams at the Australian Open on TV (decided in my next athletic life, I’d like to be a badass tennis professional).

Badass.

If you could pick to be badass at any sport, which would you choose?
