How not to do Mile Repeats

Tonight Jeff and I got in mile repeats.  This is how NOT to do mile repeats:

milerepeats Your mile repeats should be consistent; obviously I started off too fast and then got slower and slower and slower….. plus after the first mile repeat I thought I was going to crap my pants and had to find the nearest bathroom to avoid this:

We did the mile repeats at Crown Hill Park and I just watched the good ole Garmin to determine when I got in a mile.  I did pretty good!  I even did a stretch photo shoot after the run with the Rockies in the background, oh how I love the Colorado sunshine (sorry Steff and Jess, I couldn’t help bringing up the good weather here, I sure don’t miss the Seattle rain…..).

That picture is disgusting. Where do you find these off the wall pictures?

Google, Runner Poop, and that is what you get. If you get into distance running, this picture is your worst nightmare.
