Need for speed

April 8th, 2009

I’m not interested in going to Wildflower as a tourist. I’m taking appropriate steps to improve my weaknesses – the top of the list being my run speed. I’ve dedicated a lot of effort this winter on a 200m track and treadmill working on just that.

Today was an important workout leading up to Wildflower; it was a 3hour brick — I brought my bike trainer to the Chilliwack Community Track,…and set it up by the edge of the track.

9x[5min bike on trainer building heartrate to threshold, 5min bike holding heartrate at threshold, 1000m run on outdoor 400m track (descending, strong), using skip rope for skipping to 20min mark).

I was afraid the entire workout,…afraid I was going to blow-up,…afraid I was going to fail,…afraid I didn’t know if I could run fast after holding my threshold HR on the bike. I was so relieved when it was over.

My 1km run repeat times were as follows:
3:20
3:15
3:13
3:11
3:12
3:10
3:08
3:09
3:10
