long speed

I want to go out again tomorrow so I kept it brief and hard.  Incredible cool day at the Marist school in Atlanta, sunny and in the low 50ºs.

Saucony trainers on 
400m warmup, stretches, drills 
split 400m - 300m/ rest 1min /100m - 42, 14 
negative split 400m - 60 (30.5, 29.5) 
200m - 27.5

I did not feel well after this workout.   Perhaps too much waste in my body and too little sleep, maybe over training last week (over 5K of sprints last week).  Got the 'sicklys' after the 400m but hung around to finish with a 200m.  One of those days I wish I wasn't a 400m sprinter.


  1. younger athletes are usually on a 3 week increasing intensity - 1 week recovery. typical masters are two week - 1 week. Third week significantly easier.

  2. ..i should qualify the above by saying not necessarily "usually", but those who are doing micro cycles within macro cycles follow something similar with masters have a shorter work micro cycle (more frequent recovery weeks)
