Last night I sat down and put together a sprint workout.
3×800 at a target time of 3:10 per interval
2×400 at a target time of 1:25 per interval
1×200 at a target time of 40 seconds per interval
But today it just didn’t feel like the right thing to do. I had run sprints Sunday, and then lifted Monday and Tuesday. Today was my rare unforced rest day as a result.
In the last two months, my rest days have come more as a result of the needs I have away from training. It’s a result of my work calendar and my family’s needs. Today was a result of feeling tired and putting rest above the compulsion that I have sometimes to get out and exercise.
Tomorrow is another day, and I’ll be back to lifting. But not before another night of good rest.
