Disclaimer: By doing my workouts and blogging it online here, I’m not seeking attention, nor am I an exhibitionist. I’m the type that follow-through my training much better if I put it in writing. I workout because I can, and I love doing so. Do not try to emulate my training program, I bear no responsibility if you do so. I’m no role-model, not your papa, mama, your soulmate, or someone you can look-up to, nor am I’m a national athlete … I am just a NOBODY. So just leave me be.
The body is an amazing adaptive organism. Well today after some ample rest, my left knee is feeling much better, the strain is still there, but far better than previous days.
Also my shin aches has subsided, only minimal aching can be felt, so that’s good! Well I started the day optimistic, and am hoping for more recovery progress tomorrow!
I arrived at my new training time, half an hour than the usual. And other than crazy me, there’s one or two hardcore joggers around. Well done, that’s the spirit, I just hope they put on some sunblock, as it was freaking hot today!
Did the usual dynamic warmup, speed drills and such. It was somewhat laborious as my left knee is still not 100 per cent. And you know what, my stomach was acting up today. So it’s to the loo before I started my main workout.
Workout of the Day
I did a couple of strides before my speed endurance. And before that I measured and remeasured that I’ve gotten the distance correctly marked. Using my spikes shoe length, 10m is equivalent to 35 steps, and I’m a size US9. Oh well I do hope it’s accurate.
Anyway I didn’t hit my target time today of 90% effort. I was planning to hit 18.36 seconds but it was close. The fastest was 18.43 seconds and the average was 18.78 seconds.
During the run itself I find that I somewhat conjured up my own pacer. The thing is the stadium is adjacent to the nearby overhead train tracks, so at every run I waited for the train to approach from behind. When it nearly passes me, I would start my sprint. There you go, a pacer! Hahaha …
Well it was fun trying to chase a train, you all should try it. My busted left knee held out well for the whole training earlier, and I’m hoping it will be fine tomorrow too. It’s weights, so I should be extra careful as I’m lifting heavy loads.
