I got totally crushed by #tracktuesday today😫had to give myself multiple pep talks to get through it! We did 1.5 mile w/u then 10x400m at mile pace with 400 recovery between, then 4x200 at mile pace with 200 recovery between, c/d.🏃🏻♀️I only hit my pace a few times, but the effort was there while baking in the heat!
Get a coach, they said. It’ll be fun, they said. Steal @hbach22 entire post and caption from yesterday because you’re both #mckirdytrained now and it’s completely acceptable, right?! 😜
Oh yes fam. That’s my big news: No longer self coached. @itsheathersturn is now officially trying to kill me, starting with a speed ladder this morning. I haven’t officially done speedwork in a month and a half, but it went surprisingly well!
600/400/300/200 x 2 with recovery. 8.6 @ 7:27 overall pace. I’ll throw everything in my story.
Cheers fam 🔥♥️
