8 X 8 =

Taking Saturday off did me a world of good. I turned up at speed session this morning feeling more refreshed than I have lately and just as well I did because Coach Chris had a tough session planned. We were to do between 5 and 8 X 800m with a 200m recovery.

I decided to go out conservatively - well it felt conservative but it turned out to be the second fastest split of the morning, 3:38. From there it went to 3:39, 3:40, 3:38, 3:41, 3:41; 3:37 and finally 3:39. How's that for consistency?!! There was only 4s between my fastest and slowest split AND I managed all 8 reps.

So that was the highlight of the day. It's all downhill from here. Work is seriously quiet at the moment and I don't suffer boredom very well. I do have a little work to do but unless the phones start ringing it'll be done by the end of next week. I might have to start sending my baking to school with Luke so he can sell it. How many brownies/cookies/cupcakes would I have to bake to earn a decent income?


  1. Great job at the speed session. What do you do for work that is so slow?

  2. I would buy your bake goods, long would it take them to be shipped to Calif? Thanks for the FUNNY comment about my feet, by the way, they are THAT bad. You make me laugh :) !

  3. Awesome speed session! Very impressive. I think I need a new job...

  4. There's not much I find more satisfying then completing some tough 800's. Great job!

  5. Awesomejob on the 800 repeats! Strong and consistent!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you.
