I sucked it up and tried out my first Sufferfest
workout, "Fight Club" on the bike trainer.
Here's the description:
The Fight Club workout was designed to build power over longer durations, while increasing leg-speed through 23 (!) unannounced ‘attacks’ that will challenge you to accelerate and then recover while still making a massive effort. And to make you wish you never heard of The Sufferfest. But we won’t take that personally.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, right?
So, instead of just wishing to be faster and stronger, I pushed myself, changed out my sweat-drenched towel and went at it some more.
Would I recommend these?
Absolutely! IronTexasMommy will be back for a lot more!
This Morning- Sweatfest:
Met my "mentor" for an early morning track workout focused on drills and speed drills. 400m sprint / 200m recover.
Over and Over again. (Did I mention we have a forecast of over 100 for the entire week + humidity?)
My idea of a sprint is about 100m.. tops. Once.
It didn't help that part of the group running with us was a couple of high school kids that were tall and lanky and ran like gazelle's. All-State track champions.... or something like that.
Them: 4-minute mile pace
Me: I think they just lapped me and we're only supposed to go around once
Oh well, I know I have work to do. Transitioning from long and steady to fast and controlled is going to take a lot of work. Stride, high knees, quick arms... I've got quite a bit of fixin' to do (as they say in Texas).
Hope you're all having a great training week!
