Three Things Thursday

1. 6x800's last night. I loathe 800's. My warm up mile took me over 13 minutes. I'm not exaggerating when I say it sucked. But then the 800's happened, and I told my legs to just go, and... they did. Shocking. 1 mi warm up, 6x800 @ 4:40 (9:20 pace), cool down to 7 miles total. Actual: 1.1 warm up, 4:25, 4:27, 4:28, 4:28, 4:28, 4:13, 1.4 cool down. So, that was done.

2. Tonight we're going to Kindergarten Round Up for Gabby. I have no idea what this is. I have to go alone - kids not allowed (bah), and The H is working. I hope it's not as terrible as the Mother Daughter Tea Party that I attended Tuesday, wherein we discussed #2 and the Bridge to Puberty. Has anyone taken their daughter on a weekend trip to celebrate crossing the Bridge to Puberty? Anyone?

3. #1 ran a timed mile in PE. As you all know, she's pretty much a natural talent at this running nonsense. She's placed every 5k she's run.

I know.

Anyway. 6:19 mile. You know. No big deal.

Way to go #1! Very speedy.

No bridge weekends around here. However, when I used to watch Oprah (and she talked about you know what), I would yell at A in the other room and ask her if she had any questions. Good parenting.

Oh my goodness, 6.19! I would LOVE to run that fast but I'm 39 and clearly too old - well done her!

Nicole said...

Wow #1 is fast!! The kindy round up shouldn't be too bad. So the weekend talking about puberty was awful? Sounds awful to me, especially for the girls!! Great job on your 800's

I also feel that 800's are borne from the devil. Hate them. Used to hate when my track coach would make me race it in an effort to get my faster in the mile. It's the worst distance to race.

What crazy about them, for me, is that if I go slightly slower, I can then do a whole mile and not hate it. It's weird. You'd think I could run a significantly faster pace in the 800 than 1600, but not really.
