Saucony Ride trainers on
400m warmup, stretches, drills
400m - 59.5 (even split 30/30)
Saucony Showdown spikes on
6 x 55m - full speed
300m - 41.5I worked on starts and technique. I have to remind myself to keep good linear form when hitting the end of a 400. Good to know I can break 60 in a 400m without giving full effort, and in training shoes. My 300 was 400m race pace, and in spikes. I put my sweats on for the 55s and took time in between, some were close to 7, but not under. Sometimes I can really nail a start and sometimes I get out a bit unbalanced. (The 55m dash is one of those events where I wish we could run it 3x and take the best time).
My start must look odd, a lot of weight on my hands, lead foot very close to the line. The 'animal start' where I push from 'all 4s'.
Feel a bit lighter and faster. Still about 5 lbs to lose.
