4 days in Plano
1 Day on a plane
1 Day in Amsterdam
What a whirlwind of a week! I flew to Dallas to sort out stuff with my tech team. I barely survived the humidity in Texas, and I barely got myself out of bed every morning to get a run in (it's soooo hard to wake up when the time difference makes it feel like 430AM cali time!). Did I mention that I absolutely despise Plano? I'm sure the people who live there are very nice. But it's just so....vanilla? Hot? Boring? Regardless, I get so much work done when I'm there since I'm able to bug the heck out of my tech partners to get answers quickly around features we're building for Erica.
While in Texas, I did 15 x 1 min on the 2 mile loop I found, with minimal traffic stops and just four sharp turns. I felt like total garbage for the last 5 intervals and really fought off every inclination to cut the workout short. However, I perservered and finished 15, which was the number that coach had outlined for me to do. I didn't actually cool down because I was running behind getting in to the office (again, that damn time change) and basically finished the last interval and walked into the hotel.
After 4 long days in Plano, I prepped for a Friday long run with Jonah. We were supposed to do 8 miles at 630 pace, but instead we were hovering around 615 pace so I figured, screw it, let's keep the pace honest and push even harder. I am glad that we did this together, especially before I head out to Europe!
