waking up the legs

monday

Preparing for Thursday’s mile, got in some quick speed work this morning on the track:

8 x 200 meters sprint/200 meters slow jog continuously for 8 laps.  The splits in secs: 34, 34, 34, 35, 34, 34, 34, 33.

A muggy morning and still tired legs, but was good to get the sprints in just to wake up them legs for Thursday.  Not sure what’s gonna happen in the race; it’s always a crapshoot when running something out of your comfort zone.  The good news: the mile is over before you know it; the bad news: the mile is over before you know it – everything seems to occur in split, split seconds, ahead of your conscious decisions…

    I’ve rarely had the chance to do a mile. In race walk the shorter distance is 3km. The few times I walked a mile was at indoor meetings, Millrose Games among them. It’s craziness! The gun and few laps and you are done. But great fun of course.
