Three Things Thursday
1. Today I ran probably one of the hardest interval workouts that I have ever run. I've done Yasso 800s before, and because of the distance they entail, they are an incredibly hard workout. But today I had 4x1200m intervals, which sounds pretty standard and nothing too exciting and way easier than 10x800s. But my coach thinks I'm faster than I think I am, and he had me run those 4 intervals at a pace faster than my fastest recorded mile. I've never run a mile faster than 8:33 (FYI, I've also never officially done a magic mile, that record was set at the beginning of a 10k). But today, I needed to go 8:15 for 1200m (0.75mi) and repeat that 4x. I thought I was going to die. But I didn't. So of course now Adam has his chest all puffed with his "I told you so" grin. When will I learn?
2. Tomorrow... the big kiddos both have Thanksgiving meals at school, and then a week off. The term "off" is subjective. They might be "off" from school, but it is definitely not a week "off" for me. I guarantee they are still full throttle by 6:30am every. single. day.
3. I have two giveaways going on, what are you waiting for... first I have a Glitzbandz Giveaway and secondly, I have my HUGE fundraiser for Texas Scottish Rite Hospital that helped my baby girl. Without them, she wouldn't be able to walk or run. Tons of great prizes, and I pick 4 more winners tomorrow... and every Friday after until the prizes are gone. Please consider donating!!!
