Whooped and on the track

This construction project at my house was all consuming and my body took a physical beating. Mostly shoveling heavy moist clay soil and other stuff. My hands were burning this morning, my back hurt, arms & feet sore ... but, the job is done and I was back on the track this afternoon for a good solid workout. Joining me was my visiting highschool bud, Scott Strong.

While Scott did some jogging, I did fast sprints tonight... even split 400s and 200 intervals. I tried to run the 400 in even splits - 15/100 on the first, 16/100 on the second with 7 min rest. The headwind on the last 100m made it hard.

800m warmup, stretches, drills

2 x 400m - 61 (15, 15, 16, 15), 64.5 (15, 16, 17, 16)

3 x 200m - 28.5, 30, 28.5

Probably should do a strength workout tomorrow. Stadium stairs in the AM, resistance PM.
