I was planning to do 2 x 600m but I thought some faster stuff would be better. I ran the 600m in my older Hokas and it felt ok, nothing really hard. I changed into the new Clifton 3s supplemented with inserts and wow, did they feel supper springy in the next 200m. Hope they stay that way for a while. After a good long rest - about 15-20 min, I decided to run a negative split 400m. I set a goal at 62 (32, 30). The first 200 was just under 32 but felt too easy, I was thinking I had miss set my timer. I finished just a step short of 62, and it really wasn't all that exhausting. Surprising. The last 200m run into the wind really wasted me. I was particularly exhausted ... the type of whole body fatigue that knocks me off my feet. I had to sit in the shade for 10 min before I could get on my feet to walk to my car. It was a killer. So, not bad a day... 1400m of work. I think I might be able to break 60 in a 400m, despite just beginning this training cycle.
Still a bit heavy, 146.4 after workout. Feet are holding up ok. Plantar issue is almost gone.
Beautiful spring day... quite a rebound from yesterday when I woke up to a dusting of snow. Was also freezing last night. Sewanee Conference Meet on this track Friday and Sat.
