tempo 300s +

Cold, wet, windy, and dark at the MTSU track.... mid - upper 30ºs with snow flurries.  5th day on the track this week.  Retreated to the heated men's room to do my stretches before shedding down to shorts and t-shirt to do the intervals.
Hoka Clifton 3 trainers on 
400m warmup, stretches, drills 
3 x 300m w/ 2 min rest - 48.5, 48.5, 50.5 
negative split 400m / 90 sec rest / 100m - 60 (31, 29) / 14.5
The negative split 400m felt good, the last 200m felt strong and not too exhausting.  The tempo 300s were tough in the brutal cold wind.  I could not have run a 4th, so I took full rest before the 400/100.

It's going to be hard to keep my weight down during this guitar festival I'm hosting, with all the eating and drinking.  But, I'll endeavor to persevere.  144.0 after workout.

Next couple days will be better for weather, in the 60's on Tues.  The MTSU meet on Saturday I'll likely just run the 400m, although I may signup for the 200m as well.   I'm auditioning students that day so it's going to be a juggling act.  I hope to be on the track a few more times this week, shorter more frequent workouts.  I'm free to train M-W and F.
