Today we worked on the concept of pacing your efforts in order to achieve maximum intensity. Just as you wouldn't be able to lift your 1RM on the first attempt, you won't be able to get your best sprint time on your first attempt either. So, today, we tried to produce 80% effort on the first attempt, just to learn what this work feels like. On the second attempt, we went for 90-95% effort. And the final attempt was meant to be 100% effort to find the fastest time possible. This helps you develop a gauge so you can produce high intensity when necessary for very short efforts, as well as moderate intensity when needed for endurance.
