Severe thunderstorms were approaching at 6:45pm tonight, about the time I start thinking about getting ready to leave for the track. But, the line of storms parted, allowing a break to hit the track. At sunset, it made for a spectacular sky, with sunset, lightning, and a rainbow, all at the same time. There was a clear patch of blue sky over the track ... like being in the eye of a hurricane.
I did 3 x 400 - fast. All about the same time but each one was progressively harder.
500m warmup, stretches, drills
Saucony spikes on
3 x 400m - 59, 59, 59.5
I also did a few "Ape starts" from blocks. Interested to see how this new technique works in competition.
I have the opportunity to race 3 weekends in a row beginning June 10. Definitely will do the first 2, not sure about the 3rd.
