Deadlifts and 3x800m run

Posted on: Wednesday July 27, 2011

5 Deadlifts @ 70kg
5 Deadlifts @ 80kg
5 Deadlifts @ 90kg

Run 800m — fail @ 600m on treadmill 16 (km/h?)
Rest 2:00
Run 800m — fail @ 600m on treadmill 14 (km/h?)
Rest 2:00
Run 800m  on treadmill: 700m @ 12 + 100m @ 14


Deadlifts felt fine, but I completely underestimated the runs. I can run 400m pretty hard and figured I’d be able to hold on until 800 if I could fight off the panic. What I didn’t count on was said panic kicking in around 500m. Dropping 2 km/h (I’m just guessing that’s what the numbers on the treadmill mean) seemed reasonable. Nuh-uh: Twelve. Twelve? Twelve, but with enough left in the tank to go hard the last 100m.

Because I’m doing the workout of the day on the day its posted, I didn’t see the running coming and had to run without shoes. That was kind of a big mistake. Rubbed the pads off most of my toes and have a rather large and painful blister under my left forefoot. Also: spray on skin is the best and worst thing ever.

The morning fasts are no problem, although I had wound up with pasta for dinner and it didn’t fill me up nearly enough so sneaky tin of tuna and a slice of cheese around 10:30pm. NABD.
