A Waste of Time??
Raining as I reluctantly left for Chev Track this morning; nevertheless, I thought I'd give it a go; not for long though : the freezing rain turned to freezing snow flakes and then to ice particles! The track, of course, was a bog again. I really think it was a waste of time as I only completed half the program by which time I was so wet and so very cold, I could take no more!
Program: 10 - 20 min warm-up
10 x 400m @ 6:00m/k (i.e 2:24)
400m RI btw.
10 min cool-down.
Of this, in rain, snow, wind & ice, I did:
1 k warm-up + 2 strides
5 x 400m (with about 20 sec btw..too cold for any longer!)
400m results: 2:27 (6:04m/k); 2:28 (6:00m/k); 2:24 (5:58m/k); 2:26 (6:03m/k); 2:26 (6:03m/k)
Tomorrow, I look forward to running in the warm pool!
