Track workout Ludlow High School
Warmup: 5+ miles Sportsman Rd- East St Yale St loopplus track and several strides. Track was busy with kids' soccer game. I wasn't at all motivated to run track today. It's never fun when kids all over the place kicking balls this-away-and-that-away. Throw in parents hanging around watching you sweat & suck wind. file todays workout under "F" ... as in soon to be "F"orgotten.
Did one solo 200 and 3 more 200 easy with Mark Baillargeon while waiting for track to clear out:
33, 42, 40, 39
Then 7 x 400 66, 67, 68, 71, 72, 72, 72
anywhere 1:45-2:15 between efforts: 1 min rest then jog about 100m back and forth
Struggled mightly on the 400s
The legs were oh so lathergic. I'm sure some of it's remnants from Sunday's 18x400 session plus no easy shakeout run yesterday. But mostly, it's a lack of any anaerobic work in a long time.
Got what I deserved, and needed, today "A good swift kick in the butt"
A fav Calvin & Hobbes clip of mine:
4 miles warm down 30 min
That's all for now...
