Safe Harbor Drills
I had to work this morning so I didn’t get to catch up on my sleep - which means I was full body tired this morning. But when I feel weary, energy small, when I’ve run lots and lots of miles, and I can feel them all, it’s time to stride… (Ewen – pick it up)
A nice bridge over these troubles is the drill workout. It’s my safe harbor workout. Low mileage and refreshing while doing some nice stretching that I normally don’t get from the normal run. I did high knees, high kicks, striders, skipping, bounding, and even running backwards. All on the soft grass of a baseball diamond’s outfield. I’m guessing 2.3 miles total including the run to and from the ballfield - but I really don’t know. Total time was 41 minutes.
During my last cutback week prior to the race, this type of workout did wonders to perk the legs back up. And I can tell that it worked today as well. I’m looking forward to a nice run tomorrow.
