Hoka trainers on
350m warmup, stretches, drills
800m - 2:43
600m - 1:52
300m - 45Same workout as last weekend. Hurt just as much but just a tad faster. I think an early season schedule of track, weights, rest - a 3 day cycle will be ok for a while with some biking and occasional hills or stairs thrown in. At least 2 days off track for every day on. So, I can be back on track Tues.
Still using 'tricks' to save wear on my feet: alternating pairs of trainers in between warmup and sprints, sometimes even between sprints, using very heavy padded 'mountaineering socks'.
It's mentally tough to start this training because I'm haunted by my lack of improvement at the end of the season despite a lot of really hard work. If I could only manage a 57 after all that, what am I going to do this yr?
I'm not really super heavy, 145.8 after workout, but I haven't eaten yet today. I set a pretty high bar for myself in terms of leanness and fitness, and I feel really soft... due to an extra 4+ lbs and a loss of muscle mass. Time to cut the carbs. Roasted vegs tonight. No potatoes!
