On the schedule was 4 x 800's, with a goal of 3:28 per 800 (always ambitious if my past speedwork sessions are any indication). I am happy to report that this week went much better than my speed workouts the past two weeks. All of these 800's I could actually feel (and see on the Garmin) myself running faster on the 2nd 400, which is probably at least part of the reason why I'm so terrible at 400's.
Not quite the goal of 3:28, but not that far off either! I'm proud of those 6's! I did feel a tiny bit like throwing up at the end so you know it was a success.
This is a very tweet-tastic post.
In other news, last weekend this happened:
In just one more piece of evidence displaying my klutzy uncoordinated-ness (and perhaps being "irresponsible", as my husband might never say), I dropped a lightbulb in our bedroom while I was attempting to change it (insert joke about how many runners it takes to change a lightbulb here). Unfortunately, this was no ordinary lightbulb, but a CFL (a compact fluorescent: the spiraly ones that save the environment by being incredibly energy efficient, I'm preventing global warming over here ya'll). Anyway, apparently when these puppies break, it's no joke.

Did you do speedwork this week? How did it go? Ever have a run-in with a CFL? What's your stance on energy-efficient lightbulbs? Was that the most boring question I ever could have asked?!
