For those of you that like to eat your Krispy Kreme donuts check out this article of the mess their products have created of a communities sewer system. Imagine what they do inside the body.

for Tuesday 12.29.09

Warm-up videos from Mark Verstegen at Core Performance

2 x 3 x 350meters
-80% intensity
-3 min rest between reps / 8 min between sets
-Explanation: Run two sets of 3 repetitions of 350m with a 3 min rest between each rep, and 8 min between each set. You will run a total of six 350s. For an athlete that ran a 12 second 100m during testing, they will add 20% of that 100m time to each 100m in todays run. Twenty percent of their 12 second 100 is 2.4sec. So for every 100 they will add 2.4 seconds, times the 350m they will run is 8.4 seconds. This athlete, if they ran their 100% 100m pace for 350m (this is impossible, or they didn't run as hard as they could for the 100m test) they would run a 42 sec 350m (1oom x 3.5 x 12sec =42 sec). Adding that 20% on they will now run a 50.4 second 350. It sounds difficult, but get out there and do it to see how it feels.
For example:

Set #1
Run 350m #1 @ 50.4 Sec
Rest 3 min
Run 350m #2 @ 50.4 Sec
Rest 3 min
Run 350m #3 @ 50.4 Sec
Rest 8 min
Set #2
Run 350m #1 @ 50.4 Sec
Rest 3 min
Run 350m #2 @ 50.4 Sec
Rest 3 min
Run 350m #3 @ 50.4 Sec
Rest 8 min (Done)
