My first workout this year at the University's Coughlan track in Sewanee ... surrounding their new godawful astroturf field. Nice to have the track back and wow, it badly needs a resurface which doesn't look like it's going to happen anytime soon.
Perfect morning to suffer through some tempo endurance... low 60s and clear at 6:50am. I still had some lingering soreness in my groin and quad, but not too bad. No fast running today.
I did a one up from last workout by doing all five 400s with 2 min rest ... and of course, suffered on the last one. Then I took 5 and did one faster.
500m warmup, stretches, drills
5 x 400m with 2 min rest between - 69, 69, 72, 73, 83
5 min rest
400m - 66
I wish I had my foam roller and hot tub with me here in Sewanee. Weight is good: 140.8 lbs after workout, despite my constant munching on figs and walnuts the past few days. I may do stadium stairs on Wed. and get some good resistance in tonight or tomorrow.
Sooo very quiet out here on the bluff this beautiful morning.
