Today’s program was a bit tough but I was determined to log in a good run. Why? I was still frustrated with my run yesterday so I wanted to make up for it. When I got to Ultra, I took time to have a proper warm-up. I did 3 laps at easy pace, stretched and did a few drills.
On the menu:
1200@5:37min/km – Hit
1000@5:28min/km – Hit
800@5:26min/km – Hit
600@5:18min/km – Miss
400@5:20min/km – Miss
200@5:00min/km – Hit
After the 1200s, I adjusted the rest intervals in order to survive the workout.
It was another hot hot hot workout. As I was doing my intervals, I remembered a trick we used when were kids to make the wind pick up. Whenever we fly tupi-tupi (folded paper kites) in our village and there is no breeze, my brothers would whistle and pretty soon the wind will pick up and our tupi-tupi would start soaring. I thought it would work, so in the middle of my intervals, I tried to whistle to cool down a little.
I quickly discovered that you can whistle while you work and try to be just like a cheerful chick-a-dee but it is hard to whistle while you run. Luckily, it cooled down a little while I was finishing my 5K easy.
