2x4x200 tempo +

Good hard one today at Sewanee.  Warm and very humid, low 80ºs by sunset but a dewpoint of 74º made it hard to catch one's breath.   

Was a 1.5 lbs heavier than last workout due to a sushi and ice cream dinner yesterday, celebrating the beginning of my summer vacation and sabbatical.  

Started this first set of 200s a bit too fast, and the second set kicked my butt.  
Saucony Triumph trainers on 
4 x 200m w/ 1 min rest - 28.5, 29, 30.5, 30.5 
4 x 200m w/ 1 min rest - 29, 30, 31, 32 
2 x 150m - 19, 21
This second set of 200s was a bitch.  My heart rate was still 164 over a minute after the last one.  The 150s felt good, first one was rippin' - running at full 200m speed.   The foot is better, hurts less.

Nationals start 4 weeks from today in Jacksonville.   Can't imagine how hot and humid it's going to be there.   I hope they run the meet at night.  

First deadline for Nationals was yesterday.   Looks like a lot of competition in the M55 400m.  Ben, Rudy, and Tyronne all signed up.  It will be a challenge to medal, would have to beat one of those three which will be hard to do since all three have beaten me previously.  Ben ran under 55 last yr.   In both the 200 and 400, some people list seed times that they haven't run in years, (according to  Par for the course.   Both my seed times are current, from this yr.
