I Heart Mileage & Speed

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 9:16 am

Oh yes I do! And hey, for me, yeah, this is speedy.

8 x 1 mile repeats. 11:00; 11:06; 10:57; 10:39; 10:42; 10:49; 10:28; 9:51

Total 1:25:32 (I think?) for an average of about 10:40.

The first four I ran with some girls from my running group. But they had started before me (which is why the fourth one was so fast…it was their last) so I had to do the last four on my own. During my last three, the drill team at the local high school was starting to come out, so I had to dodge props, and then on the last repeat, the PE class came out and so I had to dodge teenagers on the track.

I’m now enjoying a fresh-from-the-oven raspberry scone and a cup of coffee. Good start to a good day!


  1. I’m slow as a turtle but I’d love a scone & coffee. Don’t mind if I do…

  4. MommaK: The scone was yummy! PS has a great cafeteria. I’m lucky.

    Abby: A couple. 🙂 Except one was talking on his cell phone?!?! in PE?!?!

    Kelpy: Ah, perhaps I should have specified a fresh-from-the-PS-servery-oven raspberry scone and a cup of PS-brewed-Starbucks-brand coffee, enjoyed at my desk.

  7. I agree with Goldiemowling, anything fattening especially for breakfast sounds yummmy. Though the coffee is always a must for me in the morning. At least if I want people to talk to me.

  8. I’m not sure what a scone is… guess I’ll google it.

    I run by the local high school here some. Sometimes the band is practicing and girls will yell. And I just assume they are yelling at me 🙂

  10. Why dodge them? Make them get out of your way or run them over. And next time, steal his cell phone and make him chase you to get it back while you talk to his girlfriend/boyfriend/mother. If he can’t catch you, its yours.

  11. That raspberry scone is worth doing the running for.
