CV – it’s a Frans Bosche exercise, which is more a remnant of my collegiate training if anything. As I think about it, it is more specific to flat sprinting, since I had to perform in the 100m at that time. It does seem like it’s time to switch it around some.
Matt – I feel like I’m getting better at it, but I also feel like it’s a slow process that will materialize more next season than this.
So Thursday I had a speed workout, with the typical 8.94m spacing and 39″. It felt a bit better than the prior one, as I was able to go under 8.00 again, but it certainly wasn’t as fast as my times prior to massage. This worries me a bit, as my meet is fast approaching (on April 21st). I am also concerned that I’ve been taking my training a bit too easy this week, so I think that I’m going to try to get in some high intensity short workouts this week so as not to make myself too sore but to get my nervous system used to the stress.
My workout on Thursday’s times were:
8.27 (wasn’t quite warmed up enough for this one)
I’ll have a video of some up when I get back to my computer.
Friday I did tempo, and I wasn’t super sore or anything, just used it for recovery.
Saturday I had a meet to coach at, and today I have work until 7pm, so I can try to get a workout in if it’s still light out, and if not I’ll prolly lift for some muscle stim.
Also as a side note I use ithlete and have been dieting rigorously, so I’ll start posting those numbers too.
Today my HRV was 80 and my weight was 191
