For the first time in a LONG time, I did an actual track workout. We are in off season for ultimate and the teams are doing some re-working, so for right now I am on my own for training. I haven’t been super motivated about exercising and I want to get back my motivation, so I decided to start with some good running conditioning. I miss running.
- 1600m warm up
- 6 x 400m at sub-1:30 pace with 1 min rest between each rep
- 800… no, 1600… no, I don’t even remember how many laps… cool-down
I didn’t do my 400’s incredibly fast because I wasn’t trying to kill myself on my first 400 workout for years (literally, it’s been years), but I also gave myself minimal rest in between reps. I thought I was done and well-worked and worn out during my cool down, then a friend showed up and I ran with her for probably 20+ minutes after what I’d thought was my “last lap”. Did keep track of how many laps we did run, but it was a nice feeling to end up adding on some distance that I wouldn’t have been able to do on my own.
Planning for 2 track workouts next week… Probably one day of shorter sprinting/agility and a day of 400’s again or maybe 300’s.
