Buster Special

Read an interview that Nic Bideau did this week in Osaka on Mottram's training. He said part of a session that he ran was 1x1600m, 1x800m, and 3x400m.

So that looked like something I could do. Well almost!

What I did tonight was 1 x 1600m, 1 x 800m, 2 x 400m, and finished with 1 x 800m.

1600m in 5:45. Pace of 3:35 per k.(3 min walk recovery)

800m in 2:47. Pace of 3:28 per k.(2 min walk recovery)

400m in 1:18. Pace of 3:15 per k. (1 min walk recovery)

400m in 1:19. Pace of 3:17 per k.(2 min walk recovery)

800m in 2:50. Pace of 3:32 per k.

Now I know how the 400m runners feel at the 300m mark. All lead in the legs and you have not finished. They were the hardest but certainly the fastest.
Did a 2k warmup and then a 2k cool down after the session.

We'll just see if that training regime works tonight. Fingers crossed.

nice one to try once I'm running uninjured again.

Can't wait for tonight, even if it is just a heat :)

That's Buster in the taper phase ;)

400s are hard. I used to wimp out and do the easier 300s or more moderately paced 500s.
