speed workout

Last week of the season for the Sewanee track team so I joined them in a brief workout.   Warmest day of the spring so far, upper 70ºs at 5 pm.
Saucony trainers on 
800m warmup, stretches, drills 
3 x 150m -  19ish
Sprints were at full speed with full recovery.   At the finish, I was several meters behind Ky and Davis, the team's two fastest.   Ky runs low 23s (200), and Davis 51.5 (400), so they really push me.  Sorry that I didn't do this more often this season, but they usually practice inside if it's much below 50º,  and if there is a drop of rain.

Took 4 days off this week completely but hips still felt a little achy during warmups.   Have not been watching my diet and after some undisciplined bread, food buffets, and Hagen Daz, I weighed 145.5 after workout, and 148.7 after dinner.   Just a momentary aberration, I'll be back on track this week.  On Friday, I went from 143.5 after track meet to 149.5 later the same evening after dinner.
