Ohhhhh SWEEET

Yesterday we had another V02 Max workout. I would have to say of the tough workouts V02 Max workouts are my favorites. They are tough, but unlike LT workouts they end. (I hate LT runs)

So on the calendar was 4x1200m @ 5K pace. I did some running math and a 3:30 marathon had us projected to do 1200m at 5:12 and 3:40 at 5:26. I just checked on the McMillian calculator actually and for a 3:35 1200m should be between 5:11 and 5:26...go figure that I'm doing the math correctly.

The workout also calls for 2 minutes between each repeat which we just about did, but rather took 400m jogging inbetween, this ended up at about 2:30 instead of 2 minutes, but I do like the one lap recovery.

So what were the repeats?...take this :
  1. 5:02.26
  2. 5:11.83
  3. 5:12.67
  4. 5:07.18
YAY!

Actually we felt pretty good on each repeat and weren't to labored on any of them. I'm not saying I was thrilled on that last 200m.....but you know what I'm saying.

Anyways.

In work news, I gave an update to my analysis today at the lab and it's looking good to getting approved for the conference I am going to, in fact I might get my own talk now instead of having to talk about two separate analysis. In Jason's work news it's going well so far. Tonight is an off day from running which is good as he'll put the final touches on the ole' thesis.

Personally I prefer the 600m VO2max runs, these 1200m and more runs scare the shit out of me. You guys did great though!
