I was going to “sleep in” til 5:50 this morning since I work my part-time job tonight and it’s gonna be a really long day. Then I remembered that I usually have more energy when I start my day with an intense cardio session. So I woke up super early (4:45am!), quickly changed and jogged over to the gym. (I knew you wanted to know my exact brain conversation from this morning.)
I ended up doing 20 minutes of intervals on the stairmaster (that things kills me) and 20 minutes of power-walking with hand weights on the treadmill. Thankfully the treadmill has a tv so I was able to zone out to the morning news for a bit. 😀
Can you guess what I did last night?
I worked my part-time job! The last couple of years I’ve worked as a track official and also worked the computers at winter track meets. Last night was the start of the season! I end up working way too many track meets each year but it’s such easy money that I can’t say no? I literally sit there, plug numbers into the computer, and watch the track meet. Easy, right?
So this winter you’ll find me sitting here in front of this wonderful screen:
Actually, sadly my stomach can’t handle this yummy pizza….. so I’m planning on bringing healthy snacks to every track meet like I’ve done the last couple of years. I just wasn’t prepared last night and ended up at the concession stand going with the fattiest option possible… 😦
Speaking of tracks and running, I found this awesome lil’ chart and wanted to share it with you guys. I had no idea how to determine my easy pace compared to a long distance pace, let alone figure out a tempo run pace. But now thanks to Runners World I have a chart that can guide me through this.
Alright, time for work and then more work and then it’s the weekend!!!!
