This week feels really weird to me: I can't believe today is already Thursday, and yet, I feel like it's only Tuesday. Has this week been both slow and fast for anyone else?
Some news before the usual stuff: I joined the smart phone world yesterday! I got an iPhone 5, and I'm so excited about it. The camera is much better than my little dumbphone's camera, which means better pictures for you!
|Goodbye, old phone|
|Better pictures (of Wewii) on the iPhone!|
Next week, I'll begin training for my second half marathon: the Rock 'n Roll Half in Virginia Beach!
My goal was simple: run at a decent pace during the verses of the songs I was listening to, then run at a quick pace during the chorus. These intervals varied from song to song, but it was a great way for me to enjoy some music while improving my pace!
|My music of choice...oldie but a GOODIE!|
|Such a clear picture!! Yay iPhone|
I was excited with how I did! I looked at my Garmin one time and I was running a 7:33 mile pace during one of my quick intervals. I can tell that my speed is improving, and I'm excited to see how much it'll improve throughout my training.
Question for you: If you're a runner, what's your favorite way to do speedwork? If you aren't a runner, what's your favorite way to get moving during the day?
