Three Things Thursday

1. I could not hold my intervals last night? I mean WTH? I get to the track and warm up for 15 minutes at 10 - 10.5 minute pace. Take a short walk break, then I'm off. I was holding an 8:30 mile for the first 2 laps or so, and I was reminding myself to TAKE IT EASIER. First mile comes in at 8:50. K. That's HM pace or there abouts. That's when the wheezing began, and I struggled to maintain a 9 minute mile. Some doooood shows up at the track and passes me like I'm standing still. BASTAGE!! Oh well, second mile was 9:15. Arggghhh!! but that will have to do. All told, 4.5 miles with 2 at HM pace.

2. Heading to Savannah again this weekend for the second and last time. Matthew has a game at 3 PM on Sunday. There is an option to spend the night, since teh Bug will be working. That means I could find a nice place to run there Sunday morning. We.shall.see....

3. Struggling with number 3 today... I guess life just isn't all that exciting right now! Can't believe that Rev3 HIM is 7 weeks away. I'm busy planning out my training next week. I have a HIM simulation that weekend, plus its a recovery week. That should make it interesting!

Have a great weekend, y'all!

My life is pretty boring right now! It's all about the puppy and a perfectly timed recovery week.
