warm 1600's and GIVEAWAY!

I am not ready for this warmer weather. Lucky for me it should be cooling off around these parts starting Thursday. Fingers crossed it stays cooler on through May 16th. Unfortunately I had some much disliked 1600 intervals on the schedule tonight. Only 3 but it felt oh so much worse. After the 2nd interval I took a little longer recovery in between and almost didn't start the 3rd. I had a brief bargaining session and then proceeded to run like someone in quicksand. Even though it felt like I wasn't moving I squeezed out my desired time of a sub-8 for all 3 intervals. So even though I felt a bit like what I assume death to feel like I made it through!

Onto the GIVEAWAY!

Bless you and your 1600s. I can't even get my sorry ass to attempt 400 or 800 intervals again. I just hate it SO MUCH!

I'm a follower of your blog already. I'm listed as Nerdgirl, not Xenia though. I swear they're both me. :P

It seemed to go from winter to summer pretty quick this year.
