Hi everyone, it’s Jordynn West! Finally made it to the end of the season! I’ll be covering my last week of training before I head to North Carolina for the AAU Junior Olympics!
Training Time Day 1:
On Monday, I had a ladder workout and 4x 200m runs. The ladder was 1500m total meters containing a 500m all the way down to 100m run. (500, 400, 300, 200, 100). These were a little different than how I usually do them, because on these I focused on changing speeds.
For example, on the 500m I would go out hard for 100m, stride the next 200m, and go hard again for the last 200m. I had around 2 minute rest in between.
On my 4 200’s, my splits were 31, 31, 32, 32. My little brother was also there to help push my time.
Training Time Day 2:
My final quality workout was on Wednesday. I had a total of 6 200m runs broken up into 2 sets. All short rest.
My first 3 runs were at 32, 35, 33. I wasn’t happy with the 200m run at 35 seconds. I didn’t finish the last 30m strong. That’s something I’ve done at meets which has caused me to get passed up at the line.
Then I went into 2x 1600m runs. I went a lot faster than I was supposed to on the 1st set which was 5:59. I then finished the 2nd set at 5:55. All I focused on was hitting my splits and keeping my form.
I then went into my last 3 200’s. My times were a 35, 34, and 33. I was pretty drained, but I knew I had to keep pushing through.
Training Time Day 3:
I ended my training with a 45 minute recovery run around my neighborhood. Felt strong and smooth!
Training Time Recovery:
I met with my chiropractor for an adjustment. Everything looked good, but my hips were slightly off. Finished up with some heat therapy.
I usually do cold therapy a couple times a week, but after my recovery run I went in for a cryotherapy session.
Good luck to everyone competing at Junior Olympics!
