So my workout plans yesterday got totally derailed. But for a really good reason, I swear!
Tuesday was track night with my training group – our first real track workout. Yikes! So scared. We had to use the McMillan calculator, based on our 2 mile time trial last week, to determine our goal pace for the week’s workout – 2×800, 400 easy, 1:00 rest, rinse and repeat. The goal was to join a group (4:00, 4:30, 5:00, etc) and aim to finish our 800 :30-:45 faster than the group time, use that time to rest, and then start the next set.
I actually did way better than I thought I would! McMillan said I should aim for 5:33-5:58, but I joined the 6:00 group for a challenge. Most 800s were finished with a minute (or more!). Guess I need to learn to stop underestimating myself 🙂
After that hard workout I was planning on doing some cardio and core/upper body strength yesterday, but Wednesday was my momma’s birthday! Husband and I decided we needed to do something for it – and when we decide to do something that usually means we cook. A lot.
I baked a cake I’ve been wanting to try for months as well as bite-sized fillet Oscar (so yum!) that she had mentioned wanting to try a few days ago.
