annoyed, I purchased plan-b: 2016 Olympics Kenyan Speed Suit:



basically a singlet that is "tight", not bouncy .. and some half tights. Might be a good purchase.. probably good to wear for mile races, track meets etc.. I imagine it feels compression-ish upper and lower. I've been very impressed with everything i get that's "Nike / Authentic Kenya" race clothing, so i'll probably love this. we'll see. :ninja:

I really wanted that other singlet tho.. i'll stay on the lookout :f



just found this.. this is actually a really good photo showing the differences between traditional race clothes (left) and the speed suit (right):



speed suit is really "tight". I like it. Good to have I think!

:D


I wonder if the stuff i ordered is that tight though, this is a photo of it:



they actually use a photo of manangoi in it .. but i don't see the "white dots" on it.

whatever. should be cool.

man im such a noob.

that thing is one piece??? LMFAO.

well, at least i'll own a speed suit. I guess it'll come in handy at some point.

:D

wanted to hit up the track tonight and go for a hard 1km .. but, think i'm going to change that to another grass session. quads feel too tight, right soleus is achy (what else is new), and i just feel a bit dead. I imagine tonight i'll feel way better tho.

grass lyfe.

happy with the session. was thinking of doing more ~340's but i'm basically just waking myself up for this evening.

i run faster w/ a full moon.

first ~550m was solid, had no idea it was *that* fast. very happy about that.

~450m more @ that pace and i'll have a 4:2X min/mi paced 1km... need to make that happen.

still no sub3 1km but, for no watch, i'm happy with 3 flat. will be sub3's soon. feel like i have more power already.

also happy with the sub30 200m. easier sub30 i ever hit, that's for sure. had some serious limb speed going on lmao.







so close to a sub3 km.. annoying. that happens alot with me and 1km efforts. i've hit 3:00 like 4 times probably.. lmao.

my right big toe on the bottom is freaking out. had this before, took forever to go away. hope it's not back again.. it's so annoying.

it came mid-day out of nowhere.. well, after walking around out back, barefoot, throwing dog toys - like i do every day.

wanted to stay below 200 SPM, by feel. got it done. 200+ SPM has me in the mile specific (or less) club. 190-199 SPM has me in the 2 mile+ club. so, tried to focus on keeping it kinda "fast" without tapping into my "sprint cadence".









left hamstring achy, probably a minor fatigue tweak.

ha. hit 50.0 miles on the dot.

speed day!

My mind is really locked in on "13mph". That's what I want to maintain for a mile (4:30 pace). That's the kind of power I need.

I almost "had it" with my 2:53 1km a few months back (like 12.8 mph?), but it can't be some 1-off thing. It has to be "expressable" every month. 4:4X-4:5X has to be expressed weekly.

- 400m @ 1:09
- 200m @ 29.9
- jog rest (a lap or two) between 1k/400/200

For the 1k, wanted to go out harder for 800m (got 2:22), then coast the 200m (got 36), worked out good.

probably going to try and go for a hard 800m Thursday, should be close to PR level (sub 2:17 = PR). 4:2x pace for 550m the other day so, should be able to really crank out some speed if I go for it.

we'll see.

a simple technique i've been using before my speed sessions lately (i've done it before, but not as intense as i'm doing it lately), last 2 weeks or so - when i committed to my speed again:

while i'm warming up, as I start getting closer to "go time", I start telling myself:

"just throw the lob, then go get it"

"just throw the lob"

"then go get it"

"throw the lob"
"throw the lob"
"throw the lob"
"throw the lob"
"throw the lob"

"go get it"

might sound odd but.. the idea is, just let loose.. throw the lob = "let loose", ie, make that shit bounce high as fuck, maybe way outside of your comfort zone, then go get it.

that's how my dunk sessions often ended up.. letting it bouncy at peak or higher vert, then trying to make some magic happen.

so, lately with my speed sessions, i've been equating my "start of the effort" to "throwing the lob".

I really noticed the power of it on that ~4:2x paced 550m a few days ago.. I just kept saying that to myself, over and over, with the idea of going WAY OUTSIDE of my comfort zone, and I just took off like a nutcase. I blew up pretty hard, but that's kind of the point.. It's not easy to blow up. Blowing up is pretty painful. It took a "crazy lob" to get me to start off on that pace, and then I just tried to hold it for as long as possible, whatever it was, and it felt great. That blow up 550m also showed me i'm definitely at or near PR 1km (2:53) level right now. All I really need to do is take the risk and ride it.

also with the lob analogy.. you only have a few really good lobs/max dunks in you.. so it feels like you're at that part of a dunk session where you're peaked and in a position to potentially land something crazy, you just have to let loose and go for it.

maybe that's a "speed runner" mindset though.. I love going fast, just like I loved trying to land a simple hard dunk. Blowing up after a great effort, reminds me of an epic missed dunk. Some of my favorite dunks (of mine and others) are misses. So to me it makes perfect sense..... :D :ninja: :ibrunning: :ibsquatting: :ibjumping:

i'm up way too late.. way too much adrenaline from tonight's session.

gn!

stepped in a pothole (with my right foot/ankle) while running at night in the rain .. i know of this pothole, but lost concentration of where i was at. felt it in my achilles slightly (big stretch). could have been real bad. got lucky.
