Brief workout

I've been fighting off a cold for weeks now it seems.  Last night, and this morning, had fever and chills.   Didn't sleep well, but after a nap, I felt much better.  I probably have over trained a bit ... 2 consecutive days in the weight room, huge tempo workout yesterday on the track.  Looking at 2 days of rain and colder temps coming up, so what does one do on a sick day after beating themselves up the day before?  Go to the track, of course.

Similar to yesterday, mid 50s drizzle, light breeze in Sewanee.  Was a bit achy during warmups, but felt better after the machine was warm and ready.
Saucony trainers on 
300m warmup, stretches, drills 
50m strider 
100m on grass - 14 
400m even split - 60.5
The home stretch of the 400m was into the wind and it probably prevented me from going 60 or below.  I kept it light today because I usually don't do 2 track days in a row, but with bad weather coming, I got out while the gettin' was good.
