Hoka trainers on
300m warmup, stretches, drills
3 x 600m - 1:49, 1:48.5, 1:49I did these with ample recovery so, not too bad. I was going to do 4 but ran out of daylight and visibility. I hit the 400m mark right around my target of 72 on these and I kept a very consistent pace of about 36 / 200m, all were about the same pace. Faster than the 800s when I'm running 38-40 / 200m. Keeping my long to short regime, at least a few more foundation workouts like this and then after Xmas, I'll start tempo intervals and speed work. For now, I'm doing 3-day cycles of track - weights - rest - repeat. That means just 2 or 3 workouts before I leave town for a week. I only have access to a track on one day (23) the week I'm gone so I may be running on grass the rest of the time.
Seems like I probably won't be ready for the TSU meet on Jan. 8 but I may give it go just to see where I am. The Vandy meet on Jan 14 is really the one I want to run but they are unpredictable about entry. With Nationals so early this yr, I need meets under my belt. Here's a possible Jan
1/8 - TSU
1/14 - Vanderbilt
1/22 - Emory Crossplex
2/10 - Sewanee?
It would be nice to get one more but we'll see. I could always run in Sewanee's Feb. meet on their 160m track... but that's always hard. Probably too close to Nationals.
Weight is still high, 145.5 after workout. Left foot is a whole lot better, right foot the same.
