Stop before you get sick.

That should be my new running mantra: Stop before you get sick.

I employed it last night. Speed on the schedule: 6 x 400 @ 1:45 (7min/mi), 6 x 200 @ :45 (6min/mi). I warmed up for a mile and a half then got through four of the 400s and decided I was done. Time to switch to the shorter 200s. Even though I have to go faster, I thought, it is for far less time. I can do it.

Yeah, not so much. I only got through four of those and then I thought for sure I would puke. Plus it was well after 9pm and if I kept on running there's pretty much no doubt that I wouldn't have been able to sleep. So, I stopped. I cooled down and then I was done. The workout:

1.5 mi warmup
4 x 400 @ 1:45
4 x 200 @ :45
.75 mi cooldown

What a quitter! But, really, who wants to run until you puke? Not me. No siree. So, I stopped before I got sick, which seemed the reasonable thing to do.

Today, my legs feel great, like I didn't push them at all. Silly legs . . .

And that's it. No review today but I'll be back with a great one next Friday. For now, have a great weekend!

You ran some kick-butt intervals! Good call stopping before puking.

Have a great weekend!

It's always good to know when to say when!

Roisin said...

Oh goodness...there is a blogger out there who refers to this as "The Puke Threshold".

Wish I could take credit for that!

tfh said...

Those are speedy intervals! No wonder you felt on the verge of puke. Have a great weekend!

Mel-2nd Chances said...

glad you stopped before the puke threshold. have a great weekend!

Tough workout for a weeknight! Fast splits too!

Velma said...

Good job speedy - always better to stop before you puke!

lindsay said...

much wiser to stop rather than run so late into the night. sleep is important! way to squeeze in what you could though, you shouldn't feel bad about cutting it short!

I think the puke thing is a good gauge. Good for you listening to your body!

The Laminator said...

Wow...judging from the fact that you even came close to puking, that's some serious workout. I've never came close to contemplating the puke in a speed workout...although I've felt like dying countless times. But then again, I never do 200s or 400s...maybe that's why! Kudos to you.

Have a great weekend.

Great job on your intervals, and I think its good that you listened to your body! Puking is not good, I think. Have a great weekend!

Ron said...

Nice job! I don't see too many runners posting speedwork these days. Good to have an accomplice in finding the puke threshold.

ECrunnergirl said...

Oh yeah good ol' trackwork....or "puke 'peats" as I like to refer to them! You know you have done good if you make it before you yak! Good job on the speed work!! It will really pay off in the end!

J said...

Great job on the speed workout! I know the puking feeling and it is not fun. Definitely better to stop before that!

I think that's an awesome speed workout. I've had the pukey feeling back in school when I did intervals(gosh, just saying that made me feel so old!), it's not fun!

I've read the articles and all that say "iPhone was hacked by a teenager" but I don't seem to understand what happened. Can someone be kind enough to explain to me what happened? Thanks!
