Training begins

Wednesday morning on the Dean Hayes track was a bleak, gray and cool day, mid 50'sº.   I was nervous about the fact I'm out of shape and not used to the pain of training.  But yes, I sure know pain.   I did what I had planned, a brief hard workout.  2000m of running.  Did it on all on my toes in spikes.
600m warmup, stretches, drills 
2 x 800m - 2:39, 2:49 
400m - 66
*rest interval - 3:30
It was hard, but not deadly.

I looked to see what the MTSU 400m guys did yesterday:  600, 400, 200, 200, 400, 600.  Well, they've been at it for a few weeks now.  Maybe I'll do something similar on Wed.

My weight is not bad for this point in my training:  141.8


  1. Be patient with your body .... Seems like a pretty hard first practice. You've got plenty of time before the 'gun sounds'. How about a season with fewer meets, no serious injuries, and lots of fun!

  2. Yes, I was surprised to be a little sore in the hams after the Tues resistance and Wed track.
