Though the weather looks like it is ramping up pretty fast and nicely, we are intentionally taking it slow this year, in terms of track workouts, because we want to peak in August and do well then. We are spending more time on warm-ups and drills and building our base that can take harder workouts later in the season without getting injured. In the early season track workouts, the focus is on bringing our form and technique back in slower and less intense exercises.
Continuing what we started last week, we, sprinters, mid-distance and non-decided, all did a pyramid workout in about 50% effort. One set of 600m – 400m – 200m – 400m – 600m, with a 5-minute break between. After that, we did 6 x 100m striders before we ended the team practice. The practice took just about 2 hours. Good job, everyone.
