Yesterday’s workout was a surge run…basically that means interval training according to my training plan! Usually, surge runs are my least favorite workouts. Last night, they were AMAZING. I just felt so good the whole time!
1 minute surges (fast pace run) with 2 minute recovery jogs times 12 for a total of 34 minutes.
I ran it on the treadmill because I’ve found that I push myself a lot harder on surge runs when I have the fast/recovery paces forced on me. Every few intervals I upped the pace to really challenge myself. The last two surges got up to an 8:00 pace which is the fastest I’ve ever gone on a treadmill. I ended up running for 3.51 miles at a 9:41 pace.
I finished my night up at the gym with some spinning for about 40 minutes. Went 10.26 miles and got super duper sweaty…seriously, my shirt was drenched and there was sweat pouring into my eyes. I think I might need to invest in one of those wicking headbands soon!
Once I got back home I “studied” for my midterm in Community Nutrition that I have tomorrow. And by study I mean I drank a lot of RedBull, ate a bunch of white cheddar popcorn, and read through all of the powerpoint slides from lecture. Hopefully it’s enough! I still haven’t showered…maybe I should do that before my exam. Or maybe not. Yeah, I’m gross like that.
What was/is your study fuel of choice?
- Sugar free RedBull and some sort of crunchy snack
