Workout 9.2 and a Challenge

I did my Fartlek workout today.  I couldn’t remember what the time frame was for this workout since I watched the video a couple of days ago, but I started out with a 20 minute fast walk.  Then:
a 5 minute my regular pace run (I wanted to set myself up for workout 3 of this week)
2 minute faster pace run
1 minute 30 seconds run with a small portion of that running as fast as I could (I felt like I was going to keel over after the fast running)
4 minute regular pace run
walked some more.   I took a shorter route today and that is what fit into getting me back home.  There were a lot of people out and about this morning so I felt a little insecure doing weird Fartlek stuff. Haha

I will be starting a challenge on Sunday called Christmas Dress Countdown Challenge 2011.  It will run from Sept. 11- Dec. 18th.  You can check it out here. I’m looking forward to setting my “weight wagon” off down the hill.


  1. I'm super excited about this challenge too! Good job on your Fartlek run...that's about where I had to start over 5k in 100 days. Stupid cross-country move. I'm all the way back at week 2 run 2. Ugh.

  2. I am excited to be doing the Christmas Dress Countdown Challenge with you and look forward to following your blog! Have a great weekend!
