more... but slower

Same workout as last time, 4x500m, but my slowest yet.   Maybe because of the lack of recovery time from my Mon. night workout, the stiff head wind I was running into twice (1st and last 100m), the wet track, less recovery in between, and the lack of fuel in the tank.   I ate very small yesterday.  Finally losing the weight.  Was 144.0 after workout.

74º and muggy on the Dean Hayes track at 5:40 am.   It had rained during the night and the track was moist.   Everything was moist.   Not real hot, but a tropical mugginess.

Saucony Virrata trainers on 
500m warmup, stretches, drills 
4 x 500m - 85, 89, 90, 92 
100m - 14
Felt exhausting as usual.  Frustrating that I'm not running faster but at least I'm doing it.  It was hard to get myself to do that last one.   I put the spikes on and ran a 14 sec 100m to finish.  When I'm running in the 55's, I'm running an avg. of less than 14 sec per 100m.   Hard to imagine doing that now.

Not sure what to do Friday.  Maybe a ladder 400, 300, 200 or something.  I do want to start running faster and I need to do some resistance work before I go out again for 'protection'  later today.


  1. "but at least I'm doing it."
