Track Night: Extend the Workout

Back on the track tonight with FastTracks and the routine was updated to be 5 x 1000m with 100m jogging recovery.

This was a pretty intense workout especially because the temps were in the 80s and there was high humidity.

After this we had to run 5 x 150m accelerations with 50m increments from medium effort through med-hard through hard. This was a fun set to do as you feel you can really throw yourself completely into the last 50m of the runs. My times were all around 28.5-32 seconds. Not too bad after the other intervals.

By the end I was a sweaty mess and decided not to go to the pub afterwards. Pizza was waiting at home. Yum.
