I put in a consecutive day on the track at my old high school in upstate NY to get in a workout before the coming snowstorm. I didn't want to do much today so I tried to run faster... but again, pretty slow.
Granted, conditions were extreme, about 24º, and crusty ice on some of the track. Running in long tights and a light fleece over a long sleeve tech tee. Why I expected to be able to run faster I don't know... it's still December.
800m warmup, stretches, drills
saucony spikes on
3 x 400m - 61.5, 63.5, 68Just remembering the good old days last July when I turned 3 x 400m all under 60. I'm going to have to do more negative split 300s, 400s, and do some 200m tempo endurance workouts. I'm a little heavy, 142.8 - from being around family and bread.
The snow storm here in NY has begun. Good thing I didn't plan on racing tonight at the Armory.
