Sprinting in the soup

Today is one of those famous Sewanee fogs... pea soup, visibility about 40 meters.  Temperature a cool 39º with an occasional breeze.   It's an ethereal experience ... running when you can't see the finish.

Looking at the Clyde Hart grids, I decided that at this point of the season, it's better to go for quantity rather than quality today... so I did a tempo endurance workout with strictly measured rest.

800m warmup, stretches, drills 
Saucony spikes on 
12 x 200m @ 32 with 2 min rest.  

My 200s varied only slightly,  33 - 30, the last one I pumped it up and ran it in 28.5.  The rest seemed generous at first but by the 8th rep, I was feeling like I needed it all.
