Monday - Speed day again!


Today was another speed day. Must admit that my upper body is very sore from the DVD we filmed over the weekend & mentally I am very tires. Either way, still want to keep the sprint progression moving forward.

WARM UP
Track drills
Dynamic Hip Mobiity
Multi-directional drills

2 x 20 meters (100%)
2 x 40 meters (100%)

1 x 100 meters (stopped at 80 meters because my right hamstings started tightening. I static stretched for 30 minutes two hour before the workout. I definitely do not sprint fast after static stretching - no surprise there. The static stretches were long holds to - 2 minute holds on most stretches. I usually do not do this and now I know why. The fatigue from the weekend was obviously a factor as well. Stopped the sprints there, took off the spikes and headed for the stadiums)

Stadium Sprints (focusing on arm action = these are quickly becoming one of my favorite drills. I can absolutely feel the carryover of the arm swing into my sprinting. Have never really focused on arm swing like I am now. I like it! these did not hurt my hamsting at all.)

Yeah Rif, some workouts are not as good as others. Just showing up sometimes is the reward. Building that consistent and persistent effort.

Joe - 10.75 would be nice!!! I've run faster than that in the past, but it's been many years. Next year for sure!!!
