16/5/18
Athletics

6x400m

  1. Warmup/slow jog
  2. Started as a jog and sped up near the end
  3. All out as fast as I could and got 1:29 mins
  4. Tried matching the pace of a much better runner and got 1:35 mins. This nearly killed me and was one of the toughest things I’ve done physically.
  5. Alternated walking 100m then jogging 100m.
  6. Jogged 200m, walked 100m, ran 100m.

Shot put: 6 or 7 throws

Spent a lot of time talking to the coach and another guy who’s competed in 400m about running and they gave me lots of advice. Suggested I did a timed lap to get a baseline to improve on and then told me to try and match his pace to beat it by a bit which nearly killed me and didn’t work.

Captain of crush trainer arrived this afternoon after the gym. Got it millimetres away from closing on both hands but couldn’t do it fully. Did a few half reps after just to have a play but I’ll have a proper try again on Monday.

How is your athletics training going ? Do you feel in better shape when training in the gym ?


#928

So close! Btw happy birthday for the other day


#929

It’s going good thanks. My recovery between sets seems as good as ever and I can see an improvement in my running already just week to week. I’m losing weight too so that’s definitely a factor.
