I'm tempted to put the spikes on and do a fast 400m just to see where I am. My workouts are a little lighter than last yr at this time when I was already up to 3x a week. Last yr at this time I could do 4 x 400m with 2m rest. No way now.
Saucony trainers on
800m warmup, stretches, drills
3 x 400m w/ 2min rest - 70, 73, 81
100m strider on grassI'm still heavy even though I've reformed my diet. Ranging now between 147 - 150.5. 147.4 after workout. Sometimes, morning weight is under 147. I'm reminded that any change in diet takes a long time to see changes in body fat and variations up to 5 lbs are meaningless. When my range becomes 143 - 146.5, then I will know I'm making headway. Stopped eating bread more than a week ago.
Exercising the shin muscles responsible for raising the toe helps with the foot pain, as does the opposite, calf raises.
