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.
Dynamic Hip Mobiity
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.)
