Kicking it up a notch!

Tonight at running, we did a lot of short intervals. It was hard, but good. And I didn’t even feel like I was going to throw up!

It helped that I ate some good food before I went. I also had a smoothie which helped with keeping my intensity. My smoothies include soy milk, frozen berries, hemp seed, and frozen bananas. So good! I love the smoothie train.

So tonight, we did 4 sets that went like this:
5 x 200m in 26 seconds, 26 second rest
5 minute rest between sets

It was good to remember what it’s like to be consistent and find a rhythm that works well. We kept the intensity up and our group even did our last 200s in 25 seconds. While I think that this work is a little “exact” to be doing for triathlons, it really helps with form and finding a rhythm. It also helps to work on form. Apparently triathletes are known for their poor form. I’m definitely working on mine and these workouts will definitely help. My coach used to be a hurdler here, so he is all about form. While some people think that he’s too intense and too hard on us, I think that we are lucky to have him coaching our club.
