My first workout this year on the home MTSU track, and I noticed how much more stiff it was compared to the Sewanee track, especially at this temperature. On my warmup lap I noticed a little slush on the far turn so I decided to do 300s fast with spikes 90%, but it cost me.
400m warmup, stretches, drills
Saucony spikes on
3 x 300m - 42, 41.5, 44 (straight-turn-straight)
The first two felt good, strong, near race pace. Feel like I'm not quite in '55 sec shape' ... but close. Coming into the last 100m I thought I felt something in my right ankle/foot and it got sore, so I called it a day. It's not an injury but just more of the same foot issue. Resisted dorsiflextion and heel raises help.
Finally at race weight. 143.2 after workout. Doubt I will be able to do any meaningful workouts between now and Sunday race. Maybe on Fri indoors, some cross training or something ... more snow is expected.
