We did speed work at Thompson Arena again tonight. Tonight's exercise was repeats of 600 m. with a 200 m. break between in between. Between the long run on Sunday, a hockey game on Monday and then the speed work tonight, my muscles were already fairly tight. By the time we were into our 3rd 600 m. repeat, my right hamstring and hip was very tight and sore. While my intent was to do 7 of the repeats at 2:30 each, I pulled the plug at 5 repeats. Here are my splits:
That last repeat took everything I had to make that time. With Cruise to Run coming up on the weekend, I didn't think it was a good time to injure myself, so pulling the plug seemed like the right thing to do.
