Deadpool’s Tuesday Tempo

Happy Halloween Everyone!  I hope your day is going well!  Mine is so far.  My dead legs made it through another Tuesday Tempo.  It was tough, but manageable.  I warmed up faster than expected.  3 miles easy.  I decided to spend a little more time on my drills and strides than I normally do since my hip flexors and back were still very tight.  For the strides, I did 4x100m @ 5:30/mile pace.

Now For The Workout

4 miles @ 6:54/mile These 4 miles were incredibly challenging.  The effort I put into these 4 miles felt very similar to the effort that I put into running the half marathon on Saturday.

4 minutes rest (very slow jog)

4 x 800  (3 minutes rest in between each)  That hurt.  I pushed as hard as I possibly could for these.  I know my pace was off, but I gave it everything I had.  Some days are about the effort instead of the time or pace.

3 mile cool down

This workout wiped me out.  Temporarily.

After taking a shower, changing into my Deadpool Costume, and taking care of a few Must Do Today items, I feel recharged and ready to take on my afternoon miles.

Are you going to dress up for Halloween?

If you have seen the movie, Deadpool, what category/genre do you think it fits in?  When I saw Deadpool for the first time, I was under the impression that it was a Romantic Comedy due to some questionable info I received from he who will not be named…

  1. Great job! Love the Halloween outfit! I thought I might wear orange but I don’t have a running Halloween outfit. I could throw on my cat ears… hm… 🙂 it just started raining and still need to run (boo!) so we’ll see! Have a great night!

  2. Love the costume 😀 And Deadpool is one of the few films I’ve seen at the cinema in the last few years, really enjoyed. If we’re not calling superheroes a genre, I’d say it’s an action-comedy with a light sprinkling of rom-com.
