Today, back at the oval office was a hard one. Nice day though, low 60's but windy. I was going to do 5x300 w/ 2m rest, but my timer died after the second 300. First 2 were 47.5 and I felt I was on my way to a fast set of 300s. So, after the first two, I changed the battery in the timer and on 5-6 min rest, I did 4 x 300m w/2m rest, so a total of 6 x 300... and then I went to the hill.
Hoka trainers on
400m warmup, stretches, drills
2 x 300m w/ 2min rest - 47.5, 47.5
4 x 300m w/ 2 min rest - 47, 49.5, 50, 49.5
4 x 100m hill sprints w/ 2min rest ~ 18
2 x 150m hill sprints ~ 27It was a bitch. The first 3 300s felt so easy, the first one hardly raised my breath, then the mileage started catching up with me by the fourth. It was a real tough effort to get the last one in under 50.
Down on the steep hill at Roarke's Cove Rd., I ran the hill sprints hard. I may do weights tonight but may wait til tomorrow. Tomorrow is supposed to be poor weather, rainy day. Will try to get out there anyway.
