I have been out of the blogsphere because this page was giving me some errors and was unable to post any workout. But I am back, This is my first speed workout in like 8 or so months and I am in pretty bad shape in that departament, did a tempo last Friday in only 24:50, hope to get better! My workouts has been posted on dailymile.
I supposed to do 400s in the mirador, but I went to bed pretty late last night because I was not sleepy, on top of that did not fall sleep till 1 a.m., so I decided to take advantage of my last vacation day and sleep in a bit, woke up at 6:50 a.m. and at 8:00 a.m. I headed out to the conservatory warmed up for 17 mins, then stretched a bit, then did 5 x 400s( I dont know if its correct, but effort is the most important here) in 1:35,1:44,1:39,1:41,1:39, with 90 seconds rest, now I understand I ran so bad in the past 5k, I have no speed or speed endurance, these repeats were much slower than last time I did the same route repeats, but oh well! I am working on it and probably that is because the extra pounds, felt like work today and was huffing and puffing the whole workout, I would have liked to do more repeats, but leave it at that since is the first workout of the cycle, its time to get serious again! for cool down did 16:21, wanted to do more but was really thirsty!! The weather was hot!! Have a great day!
