I hope you all enjoyed the ridiculous “efo face” photos I posted yesterday. My sister straight up laughed at me for posting those, and believe you me, I was laughing at myself as I posted them too. Classic. Anyways, thanks for playing along with the Q&A that was fun!
Yesterday was super productive and it all started with a great track workout. 10 min warm up, 4 x 1mile repeats, 10 min cool down. Our aim was to hit each repeat in 7 min, and we were pretty consistent. 6:57, 7:00, 6:59, 6:35.
The best thing of all, was that the pace felt sustainable, comfortable, solid. Which is why for our last mile, we started out at 7 min pace for the first 800m, but then gradually picked up the pace to a full sprint by the end. It felt awesome.
I love workouts like those.
The rest of the day was work and what not, but after work, Weez and I volunteered at the Without Limits Dash and Dine 5K, at the Boulder Res. We were in charge of helping people register, assigning bibs, explaining the course, etc. The guys who host this racing series are great, and it’s always fun to volunteer at races instead of getting all nervous about running them.
It was a really chill event, so we brought Cabo along and she had a blaaaaast. She met a handful of friendly faces who wanted to pet her, but she got to play in the water as well :)
And of course afterwards, we had a very wet/happy dog who loved shaking herself out right next to me. Two seconds after this photo was taken, I was soaked.
We’re be at the Boulder Res again next week, but instead of volunteering, we’re racing. So come on out and join us if you’re in the area! It’s a great course and they provide dinner afterwards as part of the $22 registration!
Tell me about your last “confidence builder” workout??
What are you up to this weekend?
Does your dog love playing in water?
