even more 300s

A nice, mostly cloudy 66º at the Dean Hayes track this morning at 5:50 am.   A little humid and the track was wet, but not a bad day.   My student Brad came out to join me again for some 300s.

I was a lb heavier today so I one upped the workout from last time.
        Saucony Virrata trainers on 
        500m warmup, stretches, drills 
        7 x 300m - 51-54 with 2 min rest
I was only going to do 6, and I ran my 6th like it were my last one, in 51.   But, as we were walking, my timer beeped the 30 sec warning that my 2 min rest was about to expire and I said to Brad jokingly, here we go again, he said ok ... so off we went.  I was still breathing hard when we started #7.   I still made it in 54 ... but it hurt.

I know it's still early in the season, but I feel like I should be running faster.   Not sure what my Sunday morning workout should be.   Maybe some negative split 400s with recovery?  Some fast 500s?  We'll see.

Achy ankle is the same, weight: 143.4 after workout.
