I had a free hour today so I went over to the MTSU track practice and said hello to Dean. I said, "There he is... 50 years!" (referring to this season - marking the coach's 50th year of coaching). He responded, "That's me!" He told me Coach Kelly left and is now at Birmingham Southern. I liked him. Sorry to see him go. Good to see Dean. I think he's obsessed with triple jump. That's what he always seems to focus on at practice. His 400 guys have been doing 8x300m workouts, almost every day. I wonder how many of them actually do them? They seem really unsupervised.
A good solid foundational workout for me tonight. Nothing full blast, but good and hard.
Saucony Ride trainers on
400m warmup, stretches, drills
800m - 2:35
600m - 1:49
500m - 85
400m - 65Next week will be my last week of regular workouts then I'll have to get them when I can, as I am on the road for a few concerts.
Should probably start doing those dreaded 6 x 300m or 4 x 400m workouts with 2 min rest. Good when pressed for time, but the most painful.
Coach Page said it would be painful... back in '11.
