Yowsahs! That was a killer workout! I didn’t expect 800’s to be so challenging. It seems like a nice, friendly distance until you’re giving it your all on repeats and then it seems like it’s never, ever going to end! Friends, don’t let those 800’s trick you!
This afternoon, I hit the hotel gym to do my second CFE half marathon training workout, which was 5 X 800m, and, boy, did it kick my butt. I actually stopped to rest for a few seconds on the fourth 800m because I just couldn’t keep going. But, I didn’t let myself stop on the 5th one, so that was awesome. I mean, I was almost done with the workout at that point!
Here’s how the 5 X 800m went down on the treadmill:
I’m telling ya it was a tough one! I thought it was even more difficult than Monday’s super fast interval workout! FYI: The entire workout, including the 10-minute warm-up, took 45 minutes and covered approximately 4.5 miles.
After my workout, I grabbed a quick snack from a cafÃ© across the street from my hotel: Fage Greek yogurt and a banana. Dinner isn’t until 8:00 tonight, so I definitely need a little something to hold me over until then.
And, because I’m weirdly obsessed with hotels, here are a few pics of my room:
I love the art!
And the stand-up glass shower. I want one of these in my house!
And, of course, fancy bath products are always fun!
Off to meet Theodora for a cocktail!
