I am very much enjoying the tempo running. Tempo running for those of you who are not familiar with the term is recovery sprints done at 60 to 70% effort. You are running "RELAXED" and loose. Overall it aids recovery and enhances circulation. It also helps improve technique issues as well. All world class sprinters perform TEMPO days. I think it's some of the most phenomenal GPP work availalbe. Between runs I do a set of push ups, jumping jacks, shuffles, twisters, jumping lunges, etc.. just something to further enhance my fitness levels.
NOTE: ANYONE WANTING TO LOSE BODYFAT QUICKLY SHOULD ADD IN SOME TEMPO RUNNING.
That is another benefit of the tempo running, it sheds unwanted fat off the body very quickly. Don't believe me; try it for 4 weeks and let's talk.
10 x 100 yards Tempo sprints on Turf (70% effort)
Running into a slight wind today was a nice bonus. It makes me keep my head down which helps my speed. It also makes the CORE work alot more.
