Ladder Sprints

Track day! Tommy and I headed over to the Eastside for some sprint work today!!! Yet again the weather was amazing, the fall air was crisp and cool but the sun warmed us right up. We did ladder sprints.. So we started with our warm up and then did 2 sets of sprinting for each of the following (with whatever ladder it was for recovery in between)...
2-50 meters
2-100 meters
2-200 meters
2-100 meters
2-50 meters
Then we did some drills on the field,and jogged back/cool down.

Keep your workouts interesting!!! Try to take it to the track for some serious calorie burning, and since the weather is still decent!!

Here's what my heart rate monitor read by the end of it..

Sprints, Sprints, Sprints!!

So, Tommy and me did a track workout today! Wahoo. It was a perfect day for it. The weather was amazing.  HOT HOTTTTT in October still. I think I might of caught a little bit of a tan...I hope.

We did...
10 minute warm up jog there
1 mile of 100 meter straight away sprints/ walking the bends.
Then we ran 3 sets of 25/50 meter suicides.
10-15 min cool down jog

Try to incorporate sprinting/interval training type cardio into your routine every week!!  The benefits of this type of cardio are extremely high. Bringing your body to its max and then giving it that recovery time  is great for fat burning and loosing the least amount of muscle mass.

We made a friend on the way....
