Delivering The Goods
Last month when I did my 8x300x200x300m repeats I went:
I said heading into October's battle w/ this workout if I could eliminate the 56 second 300s and 36 second 200s I'd be doing well
in a short space of time this has become a go to workout and a favourite,post workout I'm pondering making it a bi monthly repeat.
Conditions were sunny and mild when I arrived at Temple just on lunchtime,given it's an almost two hour workout I'd have prefered a slightly earlier start but as we head into Fall and Winter I do know the chances of my weekly sojurns to the track may ge pushed back to 1pm/2pm when it's starts getting "brass monkeys" out there,today my sole consession to the climate was a long sleeve running shirt and 3/4 length bottoms arriving and leaving the track,post mile warm up and pre mile cool down I was able to sport regular shorts and a short sleeved t shirt.....but trust me that"cheque is in the mail"
For the record I went:
After "stumbling out of the blocks" w/ the opening 300 in 56.7 I then reeled off five concecutive 52's,last month I only managed two out of the sixteen.
I only logged one 55 second 300,three down on my Sepember 21st effort,over the 200s I eliminated the three 36's from September and logged five out of eight at 35 seconds today and to round off my sixteenth and final 300 I threw in a sixth 52 second effort,I might've been knackered but I was more than pleased w/ my effort!!!
Going forward I have to consider the option of maybe dropping the mile repeats from my rotation and putting the 8x300x200x300m in there twice,it's something to consider.....along w/ some Judas Priest on ye olde ipod!!
