Wasn't feeling too great at start of workout but that improved. I was going to do a tempo set of 4x300, but I ran the first one too fast to complete 4. I thought it better to do 2 more of quality than to fall apart in my 4th tempo 300m. (300s were run straight-turn-straight)
Hoka trainers on
350m warm up, stretches, drills
3 x 300m w/ 2:30 rest - 49, 50.5, 53.5
2 x 300m - 45.40, 42.43
The last two 300s were run pretty hard, the first just concentrating on form, and the second, with everything I had left. Took ample rest between. I was quite happy to finish the set of 5 with a 42.4 300m, especially after doing 25 min on the stairmaster last night.
Feeling in decent shape, like I can cruise a 27.5 200m without much effort. Next thing is to begin work on short speed and acceleration. That's a completely different thing. I hope to maybe start that, gingerly, in a week.
Weights tonight. Looks like cold weather Friday, but nice on Sunday, showers on Tues but warm.
Still a few lbs to lose. 144.3 after workout.
