I knew I wanted quality speed tonight so I again brought the Pumas. I really love these shoes. They don't feel like they're going to rip when I lace them up like the the Nikes, and they fit wonderfully, and feel great. No broken risers either.
I set my blocks in lane 5 for a fast event run. I set the timer for starting commands and a 27/29 split = 56 goal.
800m warmup, stretches, drills
Puma Bolt spikes on
400m - 56.5
300m - 41.5
200m - 26Even with long recovery, 10+ min before the 300 and 200, I was feeling the pain after the last 200m. The 400m really pumped me up. I was right on the split for the first 3 100s: 13,14,14 but a half second off the last one - 15.5. The only difference between this effort and a maximum effort would be the first 200 in 26 instead of 27... and hopefully the last 100 in 15 instead of 15.5.
Joint pain is gone. A little muscular soreness in the quads from yesterday's 95% 100s. I think these workouts with less quantity is better for my health at this stage of the season. One 4 x 500 type workout a week will be good.
Weight is 141.2 after workout. Need to watch my intake if I'm going to be at race weight this weekend. Developed a little adipose from all the carbs, fats and sweets from the weekend festivities.
