It's been a while since I have posted anything to this blog. I am going to try to start posting my daily workouts again, hopefully to create a little more accountability and consistency in my training.
Did quite a bit of stretching in my garage "Bikram" studio. It's hot in a garage in July, let me tell ya. Focused on hip flexor and leg stretches.
Also started working on the Turkish Get-Up with the 25lbs Kettlebell Brice left at my house. These are going to be a challenge. Hoping to move to the 54lbs kettlebell in a week or so.
Went to the football practice field at the high school near the house and did sprints.
10 x 120 yard sprints, here are the times. In seconds and hundredths of a second.
3. 18:10 Only took a 40 second rest between the 3rd and 4th sprint. A real ass kicker.
10. somewhere below 20 seconds, forgot to start the stop watch.
I ran these in my Mizuno racing flats. Something similar to these.
These are the thinnest shoes I could find at the Fort Worth Running Company Store. Not quite barefoot, but we are looking at less than a half-inch of sole without any arch support.
I am going to focus on speed work during the week for the next two weeks before I leave for Colorado for the Leadville 100 Trail Run.
I need to get the wheels turning faster so this should do the trick.
Planning on 10 400's tomorrow, wish me luck.
