A long time ago, I used to do a “what I wore Wednesday” post. Almost every Wednesday…while it lasted and when I remembered. I know it’s late and in 3 minutes it won’t be wednesday anymore, too bad. What I Wore Wednesday is back jack!
Since I’ve been dressing not in lululemon leggings this week (as much as I love them and loved wearing them at my old job), and actually dress professionally again, I decided to bring it back jack.
Last summer, I should add, that skirt didn’t fit me. Hell, it barely fit me the summer I got it. Today? It fit comfortably. Hello size 6, nice to meet you again!
I ran up on the B&A trail. I had a speed workout on the docket and it worked out quite nicely – the B&A trail is beautifully flat and the weather was far too amazing to be inside on the dreadmill.
.5 mile warm up @ 10:00/mi
.25 x 700 @ 7:45-8:30/mi
.5 mi walking/.2 mi @ 10:30/mi
.5 mi cool down
4.6 miles ~ 47.00 avg pace ~ 10:30ish. The walking? Slowed that down but I wanted to get the speed for my 400m repeats. So I felt that 3 of them I ran at a sub 8:00/mi pace. The others were around 8:10-8:30/mi.
The trail wasn’t too crowded, the weather was perfect and it was 6p and still light out. It doesn’t get much better than that. I may regret this as my allergies begin to kick in but I welcome spring with wide open arms.
Spring means that hubs comes home. It’s been 2 full seasons – aka 6 months almost – and I miss him. A lot. Spring officially being next week means that soon? We’ll be at the month countdown we’re at about 42 days as of tomorrow til this training separation is all over. (Though actually he has emergency leave in 2 weeks for his grandfather’s funeral which I’ll be heading to CT for as well so we’ll see each other briefly for a weekend which will be nice because 2 weeks from Friday then 3 weeks and a couple of days til he’s home!)
Happy Hump day freaders!
