So here's the workout:
10 min warm up
12 x 400 at 1:57 pace + 90 sec RI
And guess what? I ran at or better than my goal pace for 10 out 12 intervals. Bam!
1:51, 1:53, 1:52, 1:54, 1:52, 1:53, 1:55, 1:55, 158: 1:57, 1:58, 1:54.
Honestly, I probably ran a little too fast. I tried to figure out how to adjust down to stick closer to 1:57, but it just wasn't happening, so I let my legs do what they wanted to do. I was seriously sucking wind by the end of it, but I was proud of myself for hitting my pace. (Howwwww did I ever run the 400m in high school track? I ran that shizz in 64 seconds one time. Oh to be 17 again.)
So that's what I did for exercise today.
This is what Penny did (for hoursssss... poor Charlie):
