w/o - 8x400 @ 100 sec
I strained/pulled my hamstring on the quarter workout. argh! shit. I did feel some tightness in it after the long run, but obvs, I thought it wasn't important as I mentally listed it after the foot & the back. It was cold & slightly breezy but sunny on the track yesterday, I felt it a little tight at the beginning, but after I warmed up a bit it was fine. 95 / 100 / 102 / 101 / 102 / 102 - first 2 to find the pace & warm up and then I started working on each successive rep - focusing, taking it out faster than I wanted, kicking harder, kicking from further from the finish line, etc. - I know the times don't reflect any of this effort - to try to re-remember how much I can do. The 6th one was particularly satisfying - strong 300, good aggressive kick last 100, not quite sure I'd be able to keep the kick going, etc.. But then on the 7th rep, as I started, I realized that I had screwed up my hamstring, not too badly as I did finish it in 109 & thought about doing the same for the 8th, but I ended up cutting it. Spent the evening with a heating pad, it's achy this morning..
