I was looking forward to NOT running a rippin' 500m to start. I thought I could maybe run a PR 350m, which would seem a lot less taxing than a 500m. I need to taper but need to practice splits. I was shooting for a 47 350m, which would definitely be 55 pace, but no, 48 is what I ran.
Hoka trainers on
400m warmup, stretches, drills
2 x 50m striders
Puma spikes on
3 x starts from blocks
350m - 48.2 (13, 26.2, 40.4, 7.8)
100m from blocks - 13
200m from blocks - 25.8 / 45 sec rest / 100m - 14.8
I was still feeling a little soreness from previous workouts this week in the lower quads. I think I need to work on my form and short game, as well as my splits. I was a bit tight tonight, need to combine an aggressive start with total relaxation while pushing the pace to the max. My starts were a bit inconsistent. May try another 300 or 350 on Sat, hopefully back on the Sewanee track.
