5 Laps of Lane 7.....FAST!
20 minutes warm-up + 4x100m strides.
10 minutes strutting & stretching!
Then off for 5 laps.......2:38; 2:35; 2:33; 2:31; 2:19.
10 minutes cool-down, (should be 20, so I'll lose points here! An appointment with the hairdresser will not do as an excuse for cutting short the time, but I'll give it a go!)
The weather : just about perfect for this session : very cool, misty rain, but a fairly strong headwind....you'd think it had to be a tailwind at some stage if you're running round in circles, but it seemed to be always in my face!
The Report Card will let me know if these were fast enough; the last lap was hard & out of breath at the finish; the others... average I suppose. CB is very much enjoying these track sessions, especially as there's no one else around! Recovery from these sessions is so quick that, very soon afterwards, I'm nearly always left with the feeling that I should have run faster/worked harder than I did!!
REPORT CARD ..........
Preparation: 9/10 - good physical and mental preparation.
Motivation: 9/10 - motivated to finish in time for hairdresser appointment.
Execution: 9/10 - the session was almost to perfection.
Performance: 8.5/10 - could probably have run a little quicker in early laps.
Neatness: 9/10 - very neat excuse for finishing early. Better than 'dog eating homework'.
WHOOPEE!!!! Chickybabe very happy with that!
