Saucony trainers on
400m warmup, stretches, drills
3 x 600m - 1:47, 1:48, 1:46
Saucony spikes on
3 x 300m - 41.75, 42, 43.75The 600s were relaxed and not severely pushed, except for the last one, I pushed the last 150m. After a rest, I put the spikes on and tried to run at 400m race pace. The first 2 were pretty fast but just fatigued out on the last one. It was a bitchin' workout. Taking ample time between sprints, I was out there almost 2 hrs. This workout was one that MTSU Olympian Noah A. recommended to me as a good early season butt kicker. That is was.
Although my times aren't exceptional, I feel I'm working hard as ever and should be good to go by Indoor Nationals - still 7 weeks away. Need some races. Last night I went to the weight room and worked some eccentric ham prehab and hip flexors, along with a set of squat jumps.
Inventory: Foot was hurting by workout's end. Ham is better. Despite no meal today before the workout, I'm still 144.4 lbs after workout. Should be 142 after a workout.
