My speed workout today was done at full-sun, right in the middle of the day, in the blazing summer heat! It was SOO hot! And I started slow, I think, as a result of that. On the plus side: my workout last week ended with a slowest sprint of +14 seconds; and today’s workout only deteriorated to +14 seconds as well. I was really excited to see myself manage to keep my output up that high, especially when I started out a full 5 seconds slower than last week! I still need to pour on the speed though – I can’t make my sub-5 with 82 second 400s…
