Nice day in Sewanee, 73º and mostly cloudy with storms in the distance. You would think 600s would be easier than 800s but no. With 600s, I'm running about 4 or 5 seconds faster per 200m, so it's just as hard.
Hoka trainers on
300m warmup, stretches, drills
4 x 600m - 1:46, 1:49, 1:51, 1:50
200m striderIt was about as fast as this same workout I did last August when starting a training cycle in preparation for Perth, but the conditions are much better today than last Aug. ( 90º heat index). Maybe by late next week, I'll be running fast and will put the spikes on in about 2 weeks.
In the mean time, I'll be starting weights tomorrow night and will try to keep an every other day or so track regime. I may do my first lesser volume tempo set next time out and maybe some hills. This foundation stuff is painful and difficult. Gets ya right in the gut. Sometimes, I think I should slow these reps down and take less rest. But that will be coming. I remember that killer 600,600,400,400 w/ 3 min rest I've done a few times.
