On the track before 7:00am, it was cool... about 46º.
As I walk into the track area, I look at the posted workouts for the MTSU sprinters. Playing a game of one-upsmanship, I always try to do more than they do. Coach Hayes has different workouts for 100/200 guys and 400/400H guys. Today it was 1 x 500, and 4 x 200 for the 400 guys; 8 x 200 for the 100/200 guys.
So, today I did 8 x 300.
I initially started with a goal of 14 sec splits (42) which is about 56-57 sec 400m pace. I decided it was too ambitious if I was going to do 8, so I dialed it back to 15 sec splits (45). I kept about 3-4 min in between.

It was hard, but only the last half. I really didn't start breathing hard til the 150m mark.
Resistance later, more tomorrow. The next 2 mornings look to be exceptionally cold - in the 30sº ... good training weather.
