The Russian

Don’t let these faces fool you.  These two turkeys woke me up so many times last night.  I kept trying to calculate the amount of sleep I could get before my track alarm clock.

I came home and devoured this watermelon!  It’s hard to beat cold watermelon after a killer workout.

I put on some dry clothes and ran a few more miles before GRIT class.

Rockin’ my Oiselle flystyle. Cross Top Mesh Tank, Strappy Bra, and the Mac Roga shorts.

 

Do you do weekly track workouts?  What kind of speed work are you doing this week?

  1. Okay, so normally I do track work on Tuesdays but, since this week is the official start of my marathon training plan, I did 8 hill repeats close to home this morning. I’m sure I’ll be doing speed work at the track again next week, but I really need to work some prescribed hill work into my plan. I have a half marathon on October 25 that is VERY hilly! Great, great effort this morning and love that flystyle! 🙂
