What is your definition of greatness? Do you believe in your ideas? Do you work hard to achieve your goals? Have you done something lately to be proud of? These are many questions we deal with daily and often we have no answers or struggle to find answers. Keep this in mind when you are going to tackle your ideas or goals. “If they truly serve to better you…run toward, not away, from the things that scare you.” Thanks Jenn C. for your words of wisdom this week.

Monday Short Interval 5:30 pm
“Fifty Fifty” (Chris Hinshaw)
no rest between reps
3:00 rest between sets
After performing a 15-20 min warm-up involving mobility, dynamics, drills and acceleration sprints begin the workout with 50m at an easy recovery pace. Then very quickly and very aggressively accelerate into a 50m sprint. Continue alternating between 50m very slow and 50m very fast for a total of 4 reps. Rest 3:00 between each set.
This workout has 2 paces: very slow and very fast. Your 50m easy runs are to be done at a recovery pace, no walking! Your 50m sprint intervals are to be done very very fast. Take note of your average time during your 50m sprints but do not be too concerned with timing each interval. Focus on very quickly accelerating into your 50m sprints.
Use your watch to time each round and take note of your 50m sprint intervals if you can but I don’t want you focusing on messing with your watch too much. Focus on putting forward a really aggressive sprint effort. What was your time for each round?
