Happy St. Patrick's Day!! Hope everyone is wearing their green - really wishing i would have taken today off work so i could celebrate my Irish roots. Oh well, guess there is always next year...
Found a perfect spot to start my speedwork. It's exactly 1/4 of a mile - headed out there yesterday after work to try it out. Ran the first part at a faster than normal pace and then jogged comfortably back. But on my second try, i had to slow down half-way as i was huffing & puffing.
I was a bit discouraged, but i just have to remind myself that "practice makes perfect"! I am one of those people that if i'm not perfect on the first try, i want to give up. Working to overcome that. :)
I'll head back out on Thursday to try it again. For those of you that do speedwork, how often do you do it? I was thinking 2 or 3 times a week?
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!
My permanent Irish pride:
More proof that I make wise choices
