Hot today in the centre of Paris (30°C, 86°F)... and @Tim M. had more speedwork on the schedule for me: warm-up, 10x 30/30 (30 seconds flat out, 30 seconds recovery), a couple of minutes rest, 10x 30/30 again, then a cool-down.

Was absolutely brutal -- it hurt right from the 3rd or 4th set -- and turned into a real sweat fest too. Legs were still tired this morning from Tuesday's 800's but felt good quite quickly. Glad I got it done; rest day tomorrow!

    Very nice work man. It was way too hot today for this in the middle of the day. Sorry :( You did very well with it though, great job getting it done. OFF tomorrow!!

    Oh, and I just reviewed the link. The reason it might have been so brutal is that you were KILLING those 30 second hard parts. Probably didn't need to run that fast :P But...now that it's done, you'll be glad you did soon.

    I love how you have the grandparents of training....,caleb is the grand pa, Tim is the dad and Stefan is the boy. :-) not sure how you feel about that analogy, but it is great to see you all learning from each other!

    I like it because Caleb is the youngest, I'm in the middle, and Stefan is the old man so it's like a reverse family tree.

    Like Tim said - you were absolutely flying on these..and this is just 2 days removed from a tough track workout. Nothing to be down about here my friend. @Melz - following your analogy, I am a red-headed step child because I copy/learn from all 3 of them & more!

    Flat out running is tough. If you are not used to it then it is hard to stay relaxed. I seem to slow down when I try to sprint all out. Nice work and those really had to open the the stride and will be good for turnover.

    Doubling up those 30/30 sets is a tough workout - nice job getting it done, hard to judge the pace on those "sprints".

    Oh my, you were killing those sprints! One set of 30/30s is tough, but two (in the heat, no less) is very impressive! Nice work - enjoy your rest tomorrow.

    @Lynn - thanks! And right; I do very little speed work, and this week I'm beginning to appreciate what it is all about... I might actually grow to like it one day, but at the moment it just makes me sweat. A lot :)
