It’s Tuesday and that means track morning for this girl. If you follow me on twitter or Daily Mile, you’ll know the the heat and humidity are relentless right now and that my run this morning felt a little like a swim. Overall it was a good track session and I followed it up with a 2600m swim.
4x (400 + 2×200)- start with a 400 @ I pace then go slightly faster for the 200’s- use the 200 pace for the next 400 and continue the cycle increasing slightly each time.
Although I did get slightly faster, it wasn’t as dramatic as I’d hoped for, but I’ll blame the weather and just take what I can get right now. I ran a 1 mile warm up and another 1+ cool down for a total of 5 miles.
5.27 miles/43:23/8.07 pace
500 swim/300 pull (desending by 100)/200 kick
5x 100 speed work on 2:00
5x 100 speed work on 2:00 (ideally this would be been faster than the first set, but i couldn’t swing it)
100 cool down (50 breast stroke/50 back)
Happy Tuesday morning!
