1.7 miles @ 10:12 pace
Total: 9 miles in 1:28:53
The run felt pretty good. I was working hard during the speed intervals, but not so hard I couldn't breathe. I think my heart rate got into the mid-to-high 180s. I like to do my warm up miles nice and slow before I run intervals to keep my heart rate low before I get into the thick of my workout. I don't want to stress my body too much before the important part of my workout and then not be able to complete it--I've had that happen to me before and I will not be making that mistake again.
I wore this cute new lululemon top (the Run: Speed Squad Tank) that I got a few weeks ago for the second time today, along with my beloved speed shorts. I'm falling more and more in love with it.
|Yeah, I don't know what I'm looking at, either.|
It's really light weight and the shoulders and sides are made of a mesh that makes the top super breathable, and the draped flaps of fabric in the back add extra ventilation. Every time I wear this tank I'm loving it more.
I just couldn't help myself and had to wear the matching socks.
I really love that all of the lululemon No Show Ultimate socks have "run" and "fast" sewn into them. It's like a little pep talk every time I put on my socks.
Do you have a favorite pair or brand of socks?
Do you have lucky socks for races?
(I have a pair that I always wear on my long runs and in most races.)
How did your runs go today?
