Today was OK, I guess…. 🙁
6×200 @ 28
28.78 — 29.37 (late stopping watch) — 28.75 — 28.97 — 28.50 — 29.03
Today was the first time since last summer that I was on the track at the crack of dawn. It kind of felt good to get it out of the way, but I would've preferred to run in the heat (for adaptation purposes).
I didn't feel 100% warmed up after the warm up, but I felt good enough to go. The runs weren't too bad. I basically hit every time, but I was upset on the last one when I didn't hit 28 or under. 29.03 to me is like a failure because it just tells me that I didn't dig deep enough to take off just .03 more seconds. 😡
Rhythm was pretty good today. I wish I would've got more base work in this year (aka – actually performed all my pre-season and GPP sessions) because I don't feel the "smoothness" of each run. When I get tired I really labor and though I hit times and stay relaxed, etc., I shouldn't have as hard of a time as I am. Regardless, I hit times so I guess I can be happy with that.
Tomorrow I'll be doing just a nice little jog and warm up to shake off any soreness or tightness and next week I prepare for my meet. It's a biggie!
