So things today were a little different - we did the Cooper Workout - I have a love/hate relationship with this workout since it is very hard to do and my lungs hate doing it, but it is a great indicator of how far I have come from season to season.
This season I ran further again - by almost half a lap and was very close to completing 5 laps in 12 minutes! I believe this will give me the confirmation that I am in the right pace group for me and I have earned my spot in the faster group! My actual stats are - 1.22 miles in 12 minutes making my average pace 9:51! Granted this is not my long run pace, but our coach crunches the numbers and based on those figures places us in a group he knows we are capable of running with.
Sunday is the Hubsters birthday and we are really just celebrating today - we are going bowling with his workplace and then to a nice dinner at Cheesecake Factory! Can't wait!!
