I know I haven’t been on here for a while so I’m glad to be back. After indoor I had 2 really great weeks of training, then I strained my glute following a hard track session. So I had to take about 3 weeks off and cross train. Not at all what I was hoping for this season. Two weeks ago I got my first week of running in at 43 miles and hit a single workout, a 4 mile tempo at 4:48 pace. Last week I hit 51 and hit 3 pretty mediocre workouts: 4x1000 in 3:05, 4x600 in 1:42, 4 mile tempo at 4:39 followed by 2x600 in 1:41. I was glad to be running again and knew I was there aerobically, but I was a little worried about how much of a 1500 I could muster over the next month of the regular season because none of these felt very good.
Today was a good day though and here is my workout.
2 mile warmup
6x400 with 2.5 rest: 63, 63, 62, 62, 62, 62
3x200 with 2 rest: 29, 28, 29
2 miles down
Nothing crazy and a decent amount of rest, but I felt very relaxed the whole time, which I could not say about last weeks 600s that were much slower. Still have some tightness all around in my hip and hamstring area, but it felt good to run a little faster today. Still work to be done, but we’re headed in the right direction.
