Dark Knight – My 300m test was back in January. Like I said, I haven't tested since. I honestly think I COULD hit 38 seconds for a 300m if I tried, but I haven't tried. 8x200m@70% may be intensive tempo simply because the short rests would cause LA to start building up by the 4th or 5th rep.
You are due for a test in the 300m to know for sure.
If 8x200m@70% becomes an intensive tempo after the 4-5th then that is a sign of deficiency in your fitness. Intensive tempo should consist of runs at 80-90% not 70% and below.
I realize that you have a month in the season so its too late to improve your fitness, but you also asked questions in the beginning of this thread about workouts for NEXT season. And my answer was that you need to work on your fitness.
Right now you are trying to compete with very little to no base. This is making improvements difficult for you and leaving you more susceptible to injury.
