speed ladder

Did a long sprint ladder down tonight.  It was much cooler at the Dean Hayes track tonight, 52º with a breeze.  Felt cold.  It reminded me that winter training is going to be hard... out in the freezing weather.

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 - 65
Next 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.
