Speed Work

Yesterday, I gave my legs the day off and did a "push" workout at the gym: bench press, military press, unassisted dips, leg raises, and various crunches.

Today, I met Matt and Lanier at 5:00 AM (early!) for some half mile repeats. We did 8 half mile repeats, aiming for a 3:10-3:15 on each.
  1. 3:11
  2. 3:12
  3. 3:11
  4. 3:07
  5. 3:10
  6. 3:11
  7. 3:09
  8. 3:07
I did not have a sprint in me at the end. Matt did and he was able to finish that last one in under 3:00, at 2:58. Again, this week, Matt was the lead dog on all the repeats. He's pulling me along during speed workouts right now! And kudos to Lanier. 8x800 is a VERY tough workout for only your second speed session ever! NICE JOB!
