long sprint ladder

After every other day on the track and two good resistance workouts, don't feel much closer to 'normal' in terms of sprinting.   Nice spring weather, 70º and hazy sunshine at the Dean Hayes track and I did another tough foundation workout.
400m warmup, stretches, drills 
800m - 2:31 
600m - 1:43.5 
500m - 85 
400m - 65 

In terms of weights, the injured hip flexor seems to be able to push nearly as much weight as the healthy side with no pain.  It's just the sudden change of direction and forward movement that still doesn't feel 100%.   Maybe I should back off a bit.  In the past 8 days I've run 9100m on the track (not including warmups) - 2x800, 6x600, 1x500, 9x400, 1x300, 1x100.

After a lot of hesitation, I'm finally going to see my orthopod on Thurs.  I can definitely feel a little hardness or scare tissue I believe is on the sartorius tendon/muscle.

Light.... 143.4 after workout.


  1. ok when you see your doctor RESIST telling him\her what you think it is. Give the doc history and symptoms. Don't refer to tendons or muscles by name. Keep it very general. Like upper thigh or hip. If he\she asks you what you think it is do not bite. After he\she gives diagnosis, ask "if not ___, then what is the next most likely thing it would be". At no point should you give opinion. Extract opinion.

    1. Great advise!!!! Let him do his work!!!!!
