Brief speed

Did a brief speed endurance workout today in nice 45º sunny weather at the Dean Hayes track.   I was going to take the day off due to some achy joints, but I went out anyway.   Started with a negative split 400.  It didn't feel all that great.
400m warmup, stretches, drills 
400m - 60 (30.5, 29.5) 
300m - 43 
200m - 27.5
I think I may retire the 400m race for the indoor season.   I have 3 more indoor meets scheduled and may just do the short stuff, 55's and maybe a 200m at MTSU next weekend.  I might run a 400m in Sewanee's last meet on that 160m track, we'll see.  I feel the need to preserve myself for the long season ahead.  Happy with the 400/200 marks, would like to improve on the 55/60 marks.  The 55m is such a fun race and I should be able to run 3 of them in the next month.  Need the quad strengthening band work, especially in these short all out 'drag races.'

Looks like snow this Sunday so will be indoors for some short sprints Sunday night.

I'm in decent shape, 143.9 lbs after workout, and my yearly blood work revealed that my cholesterol dropped 10 points from last yr to 180.
