Wow, workout completely thrashed me tonight.
1.5 mile continuous warmup
6×7 minute repeats @ threshold w/ 1 minute rest
.5 mile jog
This was all done on the course we are running on Saturday. IT SUCKED. This course was so hilly and had so many turns, any time you found a rhythm you were sure to lose it within 50 meters. Definitely going to be a real slow course on Saturday.
Judging by my effort I would say that most of the repeats were in the 6:20-6:30 range. They were rough, I felt like puking after the 4th one and I have NEVER puked after a workout.
Good things though, I was able to hold a hips forward position for almost all of the repeats. I love running like that, so much more power generated from the hips and yet you can hold it for a long time. Definitely pushing to make it my default racing form.. it’s so much faster.
