Speed Workout, Activities, Track & More

March 19, 2014

My alarm went off way too early this morning. We (Beth, Mac, Amber, Aubrey and I) met at the track at 5:15 a.m. (This is Beth and I.)

We started off with a 2 mile warm and then began a speed workout of 400’s. I ran a total of 13 400’s (1 lap around the track) with a 200 meter recovery jog (1/2 a lap around the track).
1st: 1:27 ; 2nd: 1:27; 3rd: 1:27; 4th: 1:27; 5th: 1:27; 6th: 1:26; 7th: 1:27; 8th: 1:26; 9th: 1:24; 10th: 1:25; 11th: 1:26; 12th: 1:27; 13th: 1:25. We finished off with a 2 mile cool down. The 400’s felt good (it took the 1st 2 to get into it) and of course my legs hurt throughout the workout but I was able to keep going. The cool down seemed to hurt more than the workout. ๐Ÿ™‚ So I found a pile of ice on the ground from last night’s track meet and took advantage of it…

It was a little cold. ๐Ÿ™‚ These ladies pushed me this morning and I am so grateful for them!
Corom and I went to the school early… I worked at the book fair and Corom and the girls had pastries and milk… How cute! ๐Ÿ˜‰
My 3rd went to speech class…

Friends came over and found all sorts of stuff to do to keep themselves entertained…


At track the distance kids went on a 50 minute (5-7 mile) recovery run. And my girls played in the sand or tormented the other kids or tried to join in.

I had scouts today… We had to deliver bags (the canned food drive) to every house in a certain area today. We just had the boys run up and down the streets/neighborhoods.

I took my 2 older girls to SEP’s (parent/teacher conference)…

Then Corom and I went to meet up at the church for a little bit. Now it is time for me to go to bed! I’m tired.
Oh… This is the project my oldest daughter is working on…

  1. The art project is coming together really well. Much better than any project I ever did (as either a child or adult!). I also love the slide idea….great time saver on those stairs.
