speed endurance

I thought a good last conditioning workout would be good today.   Didn't want to put the spikes on right away due to a little foot soreness, so I ran a fast long sprint in trainers to start.  I went out at 3:30 pm in the heat, but it wasn't too bad.  84º and a bit less humid today.
Hoka trainers on 
400m warmup, stretches, drills 
500m - 75.8 (60.5, 15.3) 
Puma spikes on 
3 x 200m - 25.5, 26, 26.2
The 500m was the fastest I've run in training shoes.  Shooting for 60/15 and came close.  I know that I need to run that last 100m sub 15 for a PR.   Then I got the spikes on for some fast 200s, surprised that the first one was 25.5.

Will rest tomorrow, maybe do some swimming.  One more light workout on Tues.  Fly Wed, 400m semis on Thursday, 400m Championship Friday, then the 200m.     Well... that pretty much wraps up another season.  'The hay is in the barn.'

Been eating much more hearty and am holding about 143-144ish.

Olympic Trials
What a diverse bunch of Olympians,  from 16 yr old Sydney M (400H), to 34 yr old Gatlin,  and 41 yr olds - Legat (5k) and Meb (marathon).  Sad to see some veterans miss by 0.01 - Felix in the 200m, and A. Merritt in 110H.   Certainly the future of USATF was represented and there was a changing of the guards so to speak.  Two 18 yr olds in the 200m mens final, including Noah Lyles (20.09) who finished 4th and will go to Rio as an alternate.  He broke a 30 yr old HS record.
