Interval sprint workout

Felt so good to get some speed into today’s workout. I have not done any interval training since I was training for my marathon back in october 2019. It felt amazing and I feel like I can definitely run these workouts better than long runs because I am giving more time for my hip to recover and I try to stretch in between each sprint. Todays workout was not to long in total it was just under 5 km with my nike zoom fly 3’s. Have not used those shoes in a very long time and definitely missed the feel of the carbon fiber plates. Anyways for today’s workout:

  • quick warmup run – light 5 min jog
  • 2x 800m (3.56min,3.52min)
  • 4x 400m (1.51min, 1.47min, 1.47min, 1.43min)
  • 2×200 (39sec, 39sec)

felt alittle uneasy after the first 400m and I needed to take a little time to stretch out the hip more. Then on the last 200m I instantly fell onto the grass by the road and a cycler passing by tossed me a cold bottle of water and yelled “don’t give up”. That made me so happy with everything going on right now it is really nice to see people out there that still have such positive energy.

Thank you so much for reading! I am hoping to keep up the runs and slowly increase the distances. I hope everyone else is crushing their runs and are also experiencing some positivity in the process. 🙂

Stay happy, Stay healthy, Keep breathing
