Rise and shine!
It’s butt-whipping time! (Does anyone remember this Cool Runnings quote?)
Anyways, ’twas another day at the track. I was scared.The game plan was to do six 800-meter reps at 3:20 pace each. I’ve never ever run 800s that fast in my entire life. So I was pretty sure I would fail, and then die.But I didn’t! I have no idea how I did it but I managed to clock out between 3:06 and 3:12 for each rep. I don’t know who I am anymore. I guess this having a coach thing is working. Also I listened to Florence + Machine the whole morning and ate 10 lbs of carbohydrates last night so perhaps that helped.
Yes to carbs. Maple has been one of our favorite restaurants for a while — so, not surprisingly, when we went there last night everything was amazing.Some of Anthony’s coworkers joined us for a late-night dinner which featured Italian brilliance in the form of bruschetta…As well as a garlicky, spicy, and buttery bowl of linguine. With clams!
Unfortunately all the late-night spice has settled, the wine has worn off, and my legs are feeling those speedy miles. I’m ready to go back to bed and it’s 8 a.m. I used to work with someone who would secretly nap under her desk at work… maybe I will give it a try today.
Get some rest and go eat pasta!
