12/365 – Third time lucky

Today was my 1200m run.  As is fits easily into 3 laps of the track that what i chose to do.  My attention span is about a long as a goldfishes memory and by the 3rd lap i was over running around in circles.  Funny how that seems to be more boring than on the treadmill.  For the next outdoors run (1600m) i will be doing 200m sprint/jog intervals.  This will hopefully spice things up a bit.  

To finish off the run i did 4 sets of 10 Rear Foot Elevated Split Squats (RFESS).  My back is a bit sore from what i think would be the Fran and Other Thruster workouts i did yesterday.  I’m going to try get proficient at single leg work over the next few weeks.  Try give my back a bit of a rest and try something i don’t normally do.  Once i build up a good base of strength in the legs i will then go back to traditional squats for awhile.  


1200m in 9 mins today, slow and recovery orientated.  Legs are feeling nice, light and fresh and looking forward to tomorrows 1300m treadmill pace run.


Run Long, Be Strong

  1. Fantastic time! If you get bored on the track when not run out into the countyside- or cityside ;)- around where you live, less boring than the treadmill or the the track! (although more time consuming).
