100% Humidity Track Workout
I work up this morning to thick fog, 100% humidity, and a dead ipod battery.
I knew I could face a long slow slog of a run through this humidity so I headed to a track to try out a workout I saw in Runner's World last month.
4 x 400, 4 x 200, 4 x 100
I ran a mile to the track as a warm-up and did equal distance recovery between intervals (i.e 400 m walk/jog between 400's) and ran back home for a total of 6 miles.
Now speed work might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to a super humid day, but it really worked for me today.
-Since I was at the track I had access to my water and a towel without having to carry them to the whole time
-The shorter intervals made it mentally and physically easier to really push myself
-The recovery time between intervals really helped me from over-heating
-The variation in intervals kept my mind occupied so I didn't even miss my music
I was a sweaty mess by the time I got home!
What is your go-to workout when it is really humid?
