At 5:15am, there was a hint of fall in the air, 63º - cool for July. It will get into the upper 80sº today in Murfreesboro, so this felt great.
800s again today. + one.
Saucony Virrata trainers on
400m warmup, stretches, drills
5 x 800m - 2:51, 2:55, 2:56, 3:01, 2:59About 10 sec slower than I was running these last Nov., but I was 4 lbs lighter and running in spikes. Ankle hurt on the last 800. Not sure what I'll do this weekend in Sewanee. Maybe do some biking, and maybe some track work. I think I'll hit the stadium stairs at MTSU again on Monday night or Tues. morn, and start adding a speed day in spikes next week. These 800s are helping me, as long as my ankle holds up. I'm really wanting to run a 400m in spikes to see where I am. Just want to aim for 60 for now. I have time, 4 weeks before a race.
Still relatively heavy, 145.8 lbs after workout.
