The track at Chev. Cold & windy again. I always enjoy a track session, even when it hurts...which it didn't today!
10 minutes slow jog warm-up. Stretches.
4 x 400m at "hard middle distance pace".
4 minute walk recoveries. Short brisk walk for a warm-down. Stretches.
It wasn't necessary to time the repeats (good form again!), but I did:
2:17.8; 2:23.0; 2:14.2; 2:17.6
(I looked up the McMillan Pace Chart & my middle distance training pace for 400m should be from 2:05 to 2:19.) Pretty accurate!
The warm-down : a very brisk walk (before being spotted!) taking a few not totally accurate measurements & furtively spraying a dab of white paint at 100m & 300m!!
Rest day tomorrow & then the 12 day cycle begins for the second time...I'm so much enjoying this program & going well so far!
