What could be better than 20 x 400m on the track?
20 x 400 in hot pink sports bras and knee high argyle socks, that’s what!
For our final morning workout in Tucson, we decided we needed to do it up right. Target obliged with the hot pink sports bras, which were just begging to be purchased.
There’s nothing better than a trackfest to ensure that you got what you came for. I was pretty sure that it had already been a very solid week of training chasing these gals around the roads and pools of Southern Arizona, but this final workout left no doubt. You know it’s never a great sign when you loose count on #8 (luckily Hillary and Amy were there to correct my “halfway done!” proclamation).
All done! Umm. . .can you tell who has been wearing the one piece? the whiteness of my stomach is nearly blinding!
We got lots of attention from the fellow morning runners, one of whom asked if we were “warming up for a track meet?” We decided to ignore the fact that our all out 400s looked like warm up pace to him, and instead focus on the fact that he seriously thought a coach might let his team run in this sort of team outfit.
In some ways, he wasn’t too far off, as the 400s were a warm up for the ALL day car ride to Lake Mead, just outside of Vegas for the BBSCTRi Half Ironman Race!
