Sprints, or Not.

Posted: June 8, 2015 in Running Blogging

Today’s run was supposed to be sprints. So the plan was 5 minute warm up walk, 30 second sprint, 2 minute walk, repeat for a total of 6 sprints trying to run faster each time, then a 5 minute cool down walk.

Well, first off, runkeeper didn’t want to use my selected interval workout and didn’t give run/walk prompts which isn’t too bad but it also means it didn’t track my intervals so I can’t compare objectively how fast I was during the sprints. But they felt much slower than before. It felt very difficult to move at all.

This is one thing that I find frustrating with fitness is how for no apparent reason some days are just easier than others. Well, the easier days aren’t as frustrating, it’s the days that are harder for no obvious reason that suck.

My second to last interval was a bit slower than the one before it and the last interval was really just a jogging pace.

Possibly related to the weather? It was hot and more importantly incredibly humid, felt almost like trying to walk or run through water! Ugh, I hate hot and high humidity weather.

Next up, Zombies 5K Week 3: 5 minutes walking, 5 minute free form run, *1 minute running, 1 minute walking, 10 knee lifts* repeat * 5 times, 8 minute free form run, 2 minutes stretching, 8 minute free form run.

    Great job still! Ugh I know, I STILL cannot figure out why some days are so much easier than others when you are doing practically the same thing! The only thing I can come up with is hormones. And yes, hot humid weather is the worst.
    Those shoes are so neat!
