DAY 9: 30-Day Ultra Low Volume Running Experiment

9-4-12, Tuesday

Did an 800-Meter Time Trial and that was as far as I ran during this workout.  Walked about 500 meters to warmup and about 500 meters to cooldown. 

800-Meter Time Trial: 03:46:23

Cut 7 seconds off my previous 2012 best time.  Felt like my running economy is improving a little.  So far the ultra low running volume hasn’t hurt my runs at any distance above 100 meters. 

I kept very close watch on my 100-meter splits and that made a big difference in breaking my previous time handily.   

 Wore my racing New Balance.  Bodyweight was 207lbs.  Sciatica wasn’t an issue because the speed was low enough not to aggravate it.
