I was still a bit sleepy tired this morning but ended up having a good core workout.
Even better, I had really good track workout! Here (I think) are my keys to success.
- Get enough sleep. Duh.
- Jog to the tack slowly! Those first three blocks from our house are straight up...
- Start the workout at a reasonable speed. I'm still learning what that is and today I got it pretty much spot on. Previously I was perhaps starting too fast - easy to do when you are the slowest person at the workout!
- Don't let the workout get inside your head too much. It's going to be long so just take it one interval or set of intervals at a time.
The goal was 3 x 200 m followed by 3 x 400/800/400 m followed by 3 x 200 m.
Ran my first 200s in 43/42/41 and my last 200s in 42/41/38 and all my other intervals were pretty consistent. I think I am slowly getting the hang of this.
I should have brought some water, it was 80 degrees!
