5x4 tempo

I've been avoiding this workout for a while now, and today since I can't run fast, I gave it a spin.  A gray cool damp day, 52º at the Dean Hayes track, good day to suffer.

My ham still feels tight but doesn't hurt.  I was going to do just 4 but strided out another.
Saucony Ride trainers on 
400m warmup, stretches, drills 
5 x 400m with 2 min rest - 69, 71, 76, 77, 82
I never really ramped up the effort too high but did manage to push my heart rate to 160 after the last one.

The off season continues.  I may do a workout with John W. on Thurs.   He's a student that runs a 2 min 800m.  I'm sure he will kick my ass.

Still up 5 lbs, 146 after workout.
