4x400m tempo

First 4 x 400m tempo workout since probably June.  The dreaded 4x4 with 2 min rest has been a measure of my will and fitness for a while.  I was hell-bent on getting 4 reps in, I put my spikes on for encouragement.

Sewanee track was perfect, mid 50ºs at sunset.  Ran shirtless.

400m warmup, stretches, drills 
Saucony spikes on 
4 x 400m w/ 2min rest - 70, 71, 76, 82

The last one was just a fast jog. No where near what I was doing in June in trainers: 68, 69, 71, 72 and 69, 70, 71, 75.   But it's a start.  I've been doing tempo the last 3 workouts.  Probably too much in one week.  Weights tomorrow.

Gained weight over the holiday, but not too bad.  Weighed 149.5 last night at bed time (3am).  144.8 after workout.  That's 5 lbs less in about 14 hrs.  (Remember that when you boast about about a 5 lb weight loss - it's meaningless).
