I hadn't done 200 kicks in a loooong time. In fact, I can only recall doing 200s with my MF -- probably b/c they're so long and somewhat tedious. For that reason, this was a good workout to do with a training partner. And it was tough, with a slow burn on the 200s. After the 100s and VK, my legs/calves were shot. I was going to do some drill work, but started cramping. So I joined Pete in the hot tub for 10-15 minutes. Definitely need to do some stretching tonight!
My arms were, as expected, a bit sore from yesterday's arm and med ball dryland workout. I'm thinking that med ball work is a quick way to get killer arms.
Hoping my legs will recover to do some speed work tomorrow.
And ugh! All of my kids are sick with colds and strep throat now. I hope I don't catch it!
