Light drills and strides
4 x 800m 'strong effort'...last 'very hard'
4-5 min RI
With the school closed for long holidays, I can run anywhere! For the warm-up I ran every which way around the school grounds using, ovals, roads, bike track and cross country......a very enjoyable way to start off the day. I haven't looked at the times for 800m repeats yet, but I struggled in each of them so I'm not expecting too much in the results. Sleepless nights - until one, two and three o'clock before sleeping and then waking up like a zombie - haven't helped my training at all. Nothing good comes out of being overly tired when it comes to training on the track especially.
