Today I used my Smart Coach app again for my workout. Tuesdays are speedwork days. On the agenda today was:
1 mile warm up
3 x 800 @4:01 with 400 recovery
1 mile cool down
I decided to try utilizing my Garmin’s interval function to help me complete the workout. Last night I programmed it for the interval distances and gave it a whirl this morning. I don’t have access to a real track, but this is much prettier, don’t you think?
Man those three intervals took it out of me. Hopefully those will get easier as I do more of them. One thing, my inner thighs/front of my hips get really sore when I run hard. Any ideas how I can strengthen them or the muscles around them to prevent that? I am trying to incorporate more lunges and plie squats into my strength routine, but any other suggestions are welcome. When all was said and done I completed 4.25 miles before meeting up with Cash and Aaron for a walk.
Now I am cranking out lots of work but wishing I was laying in the sun with the animals:
Rough life, huh?
