400m warmup, stretches, drills
4 x 200m w/ 1 min rest - 29, 29.5, 32, 33
2 x 200m - 27.5, 27I thought I could do 4 x 200 with one min rest and keep them all 30 and under, wow, was I mistaken. Should have realized I wasn't in shape anymore. Being on the track 3X a week for Nov-Jan yielded some results in my indoor season, but this hiatus for bad weather was probably not a bad break before I ramp up again for outdoor. But, it reminds me how quickly that 400m conditioning expires.
I don't expect to run any fast 400s until after May. I'll concentrate more on the 200/100 early this outdoor season. I'll run a 55m for fun on Sat. Maybe I can do better than my 7.27 pr of last week, although I doubt it. Had 2 really tough resistance workouts on Fri and Mon.
My first outdoor race is 3/13 in FL on a nice track where I'll run the 100/200. Only ran 3 100s last year and none of them were faster than 12.36, so hope I can do better. Aiming for a PR of below 12.17. According to some calculators, I might capable of sub 12 based on my 60m time, but such projections are only 70% accurate. (1.53 to 1.55 x 60m time)
At least I'm a little lighter. 145.3 after workout.
