So here is how my speedwork went today:
2 mile warm-up @ 7:53
4 x 800 @ 6:33 with .25-.50 recovery pace of 7:47
1 mile @ 6:30
1 x 800 recovery pace of 7:53
I followed up this run with lots of foam rolling and stretching.
Today is March 1 which marks the beginning of High School Lacrosse season 2012. I absolutely love the sport of lacrosse and the skills it takes to play. But even more than the sport I love leading the girls thru their runs and agility work. We started off the season with full field ladder runs x 8!! The girls had to run and a moderate pace when I blew the whistle they had to accelerate to a sprint until I blew the whistle again. Oh my...We have some very speedy girls this year and they really impressed me today. I had them follow-up the run with some agility work and mainly focused on foot speed. I am really excited for this season especially after seeing their current abilities and potential. Today was a beautiful day for lacrosse!!!
Now it is time to head to work for my 11 pm to 7:30 am shift :-(
What is your favorite speedwork drill??
