Hoka trainers on
4 x 100m striders, stretches, drills, eccentric ham resistance exercises with bands
2 x 60m with 2 step flying start - 8.09, 7.65
3 x block starts
400m - 60.3
300m - 42.8The second 60m - even though a 2 step flying start, did exceed my 60m PR slightly and I feel it wasn't 100%, so that's good for training shoes. When I went to try one out of the blocks I thought I might have felt something in my hip flexor about 30m out, so I shut it down. Then ran a few swift long sprints at 85-90% effort, concentrating on form, no problems. I don't really think I'm capable of a sub 56... or maybe even a sub 57. But, we'll see.
Going to rest and do some prehab before the next workout. Need to be cautious. I got a little spooked today after Alan, the fastest 100/200 M55 guy in the world told me he severely ripped a ham in training and is out for Spain. Bummer. That opens the door for Don to maybe win another, and he seems to be healthy, running 24.6 last weekend.
