sprints suck

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 8:55 am

Oh yeah they do. My workout last night was supposed to be a 10 minute warm-up, followed by 6 x 1 sprints…sprint 1 minute, walk one minute alternately, followed by a 10 minute cool down. I made the first 1 minute sprint, but not the next one. So, instead I did 10 30-second sprints, with a one minute walk in between each. At the end, my legs felt like lead, and I came very close to that ever-elusive “I ran so hard I puked”. What’s so important about that you ask? I mean, who would want to actually make themselves sick? I’m not quite sure really. But, these ‘serious runner’ people seem to push themselves to the limits and that’s the result. I don’t know how ‘serious’ I’ll end up being. At the moment I’m ‘committed’. So, I will continue to torture myself in search of improvement.
