Early on the track

Today, conservative workout with long sprints. I wanted to start slow and do negative splits within runs and sets. Nothing more than 80-85% effort.

Looking at the photo... my shadow looks like a foreboding specter of impending pain.

I no longer feel the quad strain but I have yet to test it at 100%.

Here it was today at 7:30 am on Dean A. Hayes Track Stadium on a warm humid morning with temperatures already up in the low 70's:

800m warmup, sprinter school drills and dynamic stretches.

spikes on

400m - 66 sec (34, 32)

4 min rest

400m - 63 sec (33, 30)

5 min rest

200m - 29 sec

3 min rest

200m - 28 sec

400m warm down

I feel like I could have done a lot more. Was planning to do a set of 100s but I thought I'd better quit while feeling healthy and strong. Had a good sweat going, finished not long after 8 am.

Still a little on the heavy side, but it's only Tues.: 139.2
