the T0ddday test

Quote from: T0ddday
A workout I like to make athletes do on the track is repeat 150m sprints with a 25 meter walk between sprints and then 10 pushups before each 150 starts.  If you can knock out 5 150's in this manner in a total time of less than 5 minutes.  Your in REALLY good shape upper and lower body. [sic all]

who wants to try this with me? seems like a fun way to end a workout the next time i'm at a 400m oval. post times to this thread.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
wednesday: fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

Just stick to your 5 50m sprints all out and 5 100m sprints ALL out like T0ddday told you.

'Toddday's fitness test'
C3 : run 150m @ 100%
C3 : walk 25m
C3 : 10 pushups
C3 info : 5 rounds
Total time : 7minutes 50 seconds.

That was exhausting. Last 150m sprint does not deserve to be called a sprint. Awesome test.
5 minutes is REALLY challenging, you must run 150m in ~30 seconds, walk 25m in ~15 seconds and do 10 pushups in ~15 seconds 5 consecutive times! :o

Ok, fine.
Also a 400m 1 set all out.

4:41. i thought i'd fucked up the distance somehow but i re-checked on google maps and nope, i did it right. i'd trade my time for vag's in a heartbeat if it meant i could jump 8" higher.

Nice work. You're pretty well rounded LBSS! I'm going to do the test tonight if the weather holds up. I don't expect to do very well, partly because I won't go all out just yet being so unprepared. Just need to get a time on the board to start improving.

That's the spirit. I did the test after not having not run a single jog for ~2 months before that session. But that 'log a starting horrible time and then keep improving' is a lovely process.

4:41. i thought i'd fucked up the distance somehow but i re-checked on google maps and nope, i did it right. i'd trade my time for vag's in a heartbeat if it meant i could jump 8" higher.

I would also trade my time for yours in a heartbeat if it meant i could jump 8'' higher.  :trollface:
On a serious note, that 4:41 is VERY impressive!
woot

Did it 2 minutes faster the 2nd time i tried, 5:50. Took longer rest before it though ( 10 minutes instead of 5 ), also tempo runs volume and intensity before was deliberately lower than last time.
