Day 2 - If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Chev Track....
....and no wonder I've already used 1 can of white spray paint, walked round & round, this way then that way, on the only closely mowed strip of grass i.e. the outside line of Lane 8, with Mr G-armin on my arm, in order to measure & mark 400m and 150m distances!
Program : Warm-up 2.4km @ 75% of MHR.
Drills, Rest, 3 x Strides.
2 Sets of 4 x 150m about 40 seconds each, with good form & no need to "bust a gut"!
2 minute recoveries & 5-7 minutes between Sets.
Then......1 Set of 2 x 150m...again, no need to "bust a gut"!
800m jog/walk warm-down.
So hot here today -35 degrees - I was out of bed at the ghastly early hour of 8:00 a.m. & on the track by the equally vile time of 8:30a.m. to avoid the worst of the heat to follow.
After the warm-up, drills, rest, strides :
Set 1. 42.08; 41.6; 42.5; 39.6
Set 2. 41.1; 40.5; 40.1; 39.9
Set 3. (2x150m) 39.1; 38.2
Warm-down : 800m walk/jog/SMS Ewen...I usually do!
No problems with this session/enjoyed it...I usually do!
After such an 'early' start & with most of the day still ahead, I sat in the shade of a long line of old pine trees for about 15 minutes....doin' nothin', not even thinkin', just watchin' the clouds roll by!
