I was on my way home for the weekend on Friday and saw the track team practicing on the track, so I stopped for a visit. I really enjoyed hanging with Dean Hayes and Coach Kelly. It was the first day of track practice.
They confirmed what I already knew, I shouldn't be training 5 days a week on the track like a college guy. I have to train smarter.
Coach also says the sprinters lift 3x a week and they do it the same day as running, they do it afterward.
The team from last year is back - including Olympian Noah Akwu, with just one senior graduating. It was a nice visit.
Next time on the track I think I'll run 100m strider repeats on grass with limited rest. The knee has been feeling fine. I have a followup with a Dr. in about 10 days.
I need to do some resistance today. I'm actually in good shape with all the upper body stuff and glute work I'm doing, still under 140 lbs.
