nice session. wimped out too much on the 2nd 10 min effort. :D

man that's serious.

I helped pace her a bit on the 200's, she's never really done those I don't think. gave her tips on relaxing/using run form not sprint form .. by the last split she was flying. I took off on the last split too. Reminded me of that TAG video I posted in the running section the other day:

- PR's: longest run on my watch non stop, first marathon distance run :personal-record:

was definitely hurting at mile 19 onward.

hamstrings/quads/hips are feeling it a bit. lungs feel great, think this was good for them.

curious to see what I can do better conditions. headwind/spiral wind was massive. at one point it almost stopped me completely, could barely move forward lmfao. I imagine everyone who ran the miami half/full had to deal with that also, tough stuff.





a few more miles and I could have gotten to the end of "miami beach" or something.. lol.



raw clip of the wind I was dealing with............................... LMFAO. insanity. It was ruthless for ~95% of that run, no joke. Tail wind for maybe 1 mile total. Glad I didn't puss out.

weather was unexpectedly cool as well, great day.

didn't get much sleep (maybe 4 hours?) but felt great.

i think that "long run" i did on sunday woke my lungs up. :D





btw, beastmode woman recap: she was feeling run down from this weekend (hard 5k saturday, pacing half for a friend @ ~8:50 on sunday). anyway, still destroyed the w/o. Hung with the "fast group" (fastest men) like usual and crushed the 800's. nuts.

^^ will recap on occasion because she's motivating. you can see she was feeling run down & that's what she said, workout seemed a little harder than it should have been, but she just knows how to push herself & fight the pain, so competitive. #impressiveAf.

very happy about the 400m & 200m at the end.. especially the 200m. That 30.2 really surprised me. I think I should be able to crush my 200m PR pretty soon. My "fresh 200m PR" is like 29.8 .. This was at the end of some tough work, sooo ... exciting. :D

Invited a bunch of people out to this session, but it was only me & Andrea. She destroyed it. "hard speed track thursdays" might become consistent, loving this tues/thurs/sat/sun schedule, and this type of session fits great on Thursday.

02/01/2018 ^^

runlikeagirl recap:
- she's basically become a training partner: we have lots of specific workouts scheduled in preparation for this half marathon on 02/18/2018.
- i've never had a training partner who is this enthusiastic & driven, 100% professional level mindset. she's capable of doing some huge things eventually. Reminds me of James McOwen (who I trained) next level "lock in" mentality, brings it, no fear. (EDIT: forgot about Eddie .. he was really solid to train with, but he couldn't train outside of our workouts, so not on that level).
- she's a half & full marathoner, but i've convinced her to do more 5k's and even the mile races in December
- I think come December, she'll be competitive for the top 2 spots in any mile race around here, and these are very competitive races, male or female. And she'll be able to do that while being in marathon shape..................................... :wowthatwasnutswtf:
- I think she could be a low 5's miler by December, and sub 18 5k'r by mid 2018.
- IMHO she's already a 5:29 miler, just doesn't know how to pace it properly yet .. this was her first ever hard mile & she hit 5:39 with a hard opening 400m @ 5:1x pace...

Her numbers for this workout:
- mile: 5:39.x
- 800m: 2:39.x
- 400m: 1:16.x (gps said 0.26 mi @ 4:57 pace)
- 200m: 36.x

That's impressive af.

It was interesting seeing her have even more speed today, without doing anything different -> simply due to the mental aspect. Since the focus was on hard efforts with full recovery, you could see she was experiencing what I experience, the brain gives you more speed/power at the same effort level you would be in an interval workout.

Our warmup strides were effortless & relaxed af, low 5's to sub 5's.. so I knew I was going to have a good session & was like holy sh*t she's going to have an insane session.

It is also interesting to see how, when I first did a track workout with her, she mentioned to me that she has no speed etc.. and I lol'd like wtf? Explained to her that she did etc. Anyway, after several sessions and this one, you can see already she's re-thunk that concept and now believes she has some serious horsepower & understands how it will help her in the half & full marathon. Interesting to see that mental switch. I've met lots of people who say they have no speed, and it's simply their mindset and how they train, nothing more. Everyone has speed, just need to actually believe it and tap into it - because it's already there to save us in life or death situations.

It kind of feels like i'm coaching again .. which actually feels good, but not strictly coaching because we are also training simultaneously.. which I enjoy more than just coaching :D I'm not trying to coach her, I hate taking on that responsibility/stress/commitment. She does seem to respect my opinion/knowledge/experience alot tho & said i'm a "great coach!" today after the workout. So she's taken my input on several training related things, but i've also taken input from her as well, so it's not like it's one way, not at all. cool stuff.

:ibrunning: :ibrunning: :ibrunning:

runlikeagirl recaps are pretty cool IMHO. interesting addition to my training journal.

another post, this is what I posted to some local private run group .. invited anyone to come out. one other person said they would show up, but they didn't, so only she showed up.

Sup folks! Figured i'd post this here in case anyone wants to do a session like this: hammer time.

I'm doing a "hard speed" (low volume, high intensity) session at Carter Park (Joseph C. Carter Park) track on Thursday @ 6 AM. It'll probably be ~50 min total. I know of a few other people who will probably be joining.

This workout will be hard efforts with equal distance recovery (very light jog) in between each rep & some walking rest to re-focus: 1 mile, 800m, 400m, 2 x 200m.

Total mileage: (6-7 mi) = warmup 1.25 (1+strides/walk back), mile, mile recovery, 800m, 800m recovery, 400m, 400m recovery, 2 x 200m with 200m recovery, cooldown (1+ miles)

Also, i'll get there a little earlier to warmup real light .. then at 6 AM i'm doing a warmup with whoever is there (1 mile + strides etc). Group warmup/cooldown & jog recoveries.

peace!!

#trackthursday  8)




Someone asked what paces would be available, I was pretty close on everything (between my paces and hers), except for her 800m, not sure what I was thinking:

Hey Ron! Yea we are still meeting up tomorrow. It's only a few people so, not too many paces. It's also going to be more of a group for the warmup/cooldown and recoveries, then "solo/chase" for the efforts - which still works out great. I'll be going for a 5:1X mile, Andrea will be going for low 5:4X's probably. Then i'll be going for < 2:25 800, ~67 400, and some low 30's 200's. Andrea will probably be gunning for < 2:50 800, < 80s 400, < 37s 200's. Something like that. peace!!



And here's what I posted today:

Quote
Already looking like there will be another Track Thursday @ Carter next week, in case anyone is interested! :D Again, hard speed session. That one will be a little different, opening with an all out 2 miler instead of a hard mile, then hit 1k, 400+ lane 8, 200+ lane 8, 100 (submax) etc. 8| 8|



so in a nutshell, i'm basically starting my own "track thursday" group... I'm doing this because, I need at least some control over my training, and why not do it with the training I find MOST EFFECTIVE -> my hard speed sessions. So now that I have full control on this day, I feel like i've fixed an ingredient that's been missing in my training in January 2018.

so, will continue to invite people on Thursdays and just turn it into an "all out day", every week.

we'll see how that goes :D :ibrunning: :ibrunning: :ibrunning:

Also, we have this workout scheduled on Tuesday, it's taken from Coach Hudson's black book redux .. it's a Half Marathon Spec workout, basically race simulation without running the full 13.1:

5 x (3k @ half marathon pace, 1k float @ half marathon pace + 20-40s)

so we'll be trying to do:

5 x (3k @ 6:20, 1k float @ 7:00) = 20k

The guy who organizes those track workouts said he'll post it, in case anyone else wants to do it... but I don't think he wants to do it, said it's "extremely tough" .. which is kind of why we're doing it...... :D lmfao.

:ibjumping: :ibsquatting: :ibrunning:

that workout is going to be nuts.. :o :wowthatwasnutswtf: but, running is nuts and you have to be nuts to win. :ninja:
