After a slow cautious 400m, I declared myself fit to train and it was a tough first day, not wanting to push it, but wanting a workout.
Perfect day in Sewanee, low 60ºs in late morning, sunny.
Saucony Ride trainers on
400m warm up, stretches, drills
400m - 84
3 x 800m - 2:48, 2:58, 2:55 w/ 3-5 min restIt was hard but not too bad. A good benchmark to start improving on, hopefully a little faster and farther each time. I could still feel the injury slightly, but never did anything remotely fast to stress it, nothing faster than a 20 sec 100m pace. Felt fine afterward. Will do some resistance band work to strengthen it and maybe back on the track again Monday.
Tentatively, I might do something at the Nashville Masters meet in 3 weeks, maybe an 800m.
