Man what a difference a day makes. No sickness at all on or off the track tonight. No issues except for sore quads and calfs and a blister. I will take it being that it is just over a week since the marathon. Oh and the fact that I thought I was going to die yesterday!
Tonight was 4*800 and 8*200. I hate 200s. I hate them more than about anything. I would rather run 1200s or 1600s, hell I'd rather do 3200 repeats than freaking 200s. My legs just don't start turning over that fast so quickly. I need at least a 200 just to warm up through a fast 400. When I run 79 quarters the first 200 is almost always a 40 and the second 39.
It was extremely cold tonight. About 42 with an extreme wind. I swear it almost knocked me down on the last 200.
Anyways here's the workout rundown. 6.75 miles total in 55:47.
Warm up 2.25 miles
800 splits: (300-400 recovery between)
2*(4*200: 1st one glide 100, sprint 100; 2nd one glide 75, sprint 125; 3rd glide 50, sprint 150; 4th glide 25, sprint 175: 100 recovery in between each 200)
1/2 mile cool down (Stopped shy of the mile because of a blister. Didn't notice it during Boston but lost a good chunk of skin off that toe since and I didn't want to make it worse)
I swear I have no fast twitch muscles, whatsoever. How is it that I can run a 79 quarter but the fastest 200 I can manage is a 40? WTH.
