I am all about the honesty here, so I'm just telling you how I really feel. Speed work sucks donkey balls.
The weather last night was flat out perfect for running. It was cool enough, in fact, that I work a jacket. I didn't really need it, but I like using the pockets.
Last night was a tempo run. I did my first easy mile, felt pretty good, then switched my intervals to 1:30 run/ :30 walk for the two miles tempo. I didn't do the track this time, figured running through the neighborhood would be just as good.
Those two miles sucked. I felt terrible. I felt like I was busting my ass the entire time and didn't have much left to give. I honestly have no idea how I am going to maintain a similar pace for a half marathon next friggin' month!
It sucked but I got it done.

For me my goal is pretty simple: First, stick to just eating my daily WW points without going over. Unless it is a high activity day, like a running day. I have been losing weight by veeeeeeery slooooooowly and I've noticed I have gone over on my daily points almost every single day. I use Activity Points and Weekly Points and don't go over on those, but I wonder if I stuck closer to my dailies if I would lose weight a little faster? Second, related to the first, add an extra serving of fruits or vegetables to every meal. Fruits and veggies are 0 points on WW and by adding them to my meals it'll help me stay within my daily points range.
While yesterday wasn't yet the first day of the challenge, I had to share my lunch.
