Good morning!! Today is Work it Wednesdays and I started my day with five miles of Yasso's. I so dreaded starting these back up (mostly out of fear) but now that we completed our third week of them, I am so thankful that my runner girls pushed me to ressurect these lovely drills.
This morning, we had a runner guy join us. Fun to mix it up. I shaved about 20 seconds off of last week...and that was with adding a mile. Today, i used my Ipod for the first time since my full marathon in November. I really enjoy Zen running but for Yasso's, I think the Ipod is needed.
After next week, we increase to 800's. In March, we will be running our annual St. Patrick's race. This was my first race four years ago. That was such a glorious day. Before garmins, pacing, etc. I remember crying tears as I turned the corner towards the finish line.
Last year, it was a different story. I had my garmin and most importantly my crazy pacer girl Jenny. We completed it at a pace of 9:40 which was about a minute faster than the previous year. So, obviously being the type A person that I am, I have to beat my pace. These Yasso's should help with that.
My friend Summer sent me a great strength workout and I think I will do that today as well. What is your Wednesday shaping up to be? Are you running, cross training, Zumbaing, practicing Yoga? Share some inspiration!
