Today, conservative workout with long sprints. I wanted to start slow and do negative splits within runs and sets. Nothing more than 80-85% effort.
Looking at the photo... my shadow looks like a foreboding specter of impending pain.
I no longer feel the quad strain but I have yet to test it at 100%.
Here it was today at 7:30 am on Dean A. Hayes Track Stadium on a warm humid morning with temperatures already up in the low 70's:
800m warmup, sprinter school drills and dynamic stretches.
400m - 66 sec (34, 32)
4 min rest
400m - 63 sec (33, 30)
5 min rest
200m - 29 sec
3 min rest
200m - 28 sec
400m warm down
I feel like I could have done a lot more. Was planning to do a set of 100s but I thought I'd better quit while feeling healthy and strong. Had a good sweat going, finished not long after 8 am.
Still a little on the heavy side, but it's only Tues.: 139.2
