Day 4 - Smart Girls Don't Talk.......
..........but they do ask questions! Mine being : why do 400m repeats get faster while 800m repeats get slower?
Program : 2km warm-up at 75% of MHR.
Some drills. Rest. 3xstrides.
4 x 400m HARD...... with 3 minute walk recoveries.
1 x 800m HARD.
800m walk/jog warm-down.
Warm-up 2km, drills, rest, strides -- all done!
4 x 400m = 2:07; 2:08.6; 2:02.0; 2:14.9 then......
Full recovery? I'll check with Ewen if the following day would be too soon!
1 x 800m = 4:58 (miserably slower than 2 previous weeks).
400m splits = 2:34; 2:23
The day was excellent: cool, overcast again, dry ground but rough surface. I wore my favourite old, torn-at-the-heels Nike Free trainers. The 400m repeats were faster this week than any other - that was the good news; the 800m was slower than any other - and that's the bad news!
