Beautiful morning on the Dean Hayes track, sunny 70º, moist. The cones and hurdles are out which means the team is back to regular practicing. I should join them sometime. I'll wait for a cloudy cool Monday.
Cooler weather coming tonight.... it's supposed to hit the 40s tonight on the plateau and only low 70ºs tomorrow.
I just warmed up today and ran a little at 80% effort to work up a sweat and try to shed some of this soreness.
Saucony Virrata training shoes on
800m warmup, stretches, drills
400m - 64
200m - 28
Think I'll hit the hot tub and the foam roller. Later today in Sewanee, I'll get the blocks out and spikes on and mess around with some starts.... and stretch a bit more. Looks like Sewanee isn't getting a new track anytime soon... hopefully before the spring.
Tomorrow is just a hand timed senior meet. Another solo time trial/workout.
Weight is good again: 140.8 lbs after workout. Should be at a decent race weight tomorrow.
I've just been made aware of a spectacular new indoor track in Birmingham: the Birmingham Crossplex has a brand new hydraulically banked Super-X Mondo 200m track. They'll be running a Div III college meet there very early in the season and usually 3 more during the year. The first meet is usually the weekend after Thanksgiving.
Well, well.... Vanderbilt has a brand new 300m indoor track ast their new multi purpose facility.... and they're having a meet there 1/25-26. It looks like there will be as many as seven or more meets I can run in this coming season.
It'll be here before you know it.
