400m warmup, stretches
800m - 2:46 (83, 83)
15 x stadium stairsMy 800m was pathetic. I thought I could break 2:40 but didn't come close. Jacob ran 72-78 splits, my last 100 must have taken me 21+ sec. Pathetic. I'm just too heavy and have lost any foundation I had built up in Jan. I was definitely in better shape in Jan when I ran 57.02 at Vandy. My foot has not allowed me to get the volume in. Taking 4 weeks off the track is costly. At least I have another month before I race. It'll probably be 2 or 3 weeks before I attempt anything in spikes.
It wouldn't be a bad idea to keep doing 2 foundation workouts a week, and maybe one quality speed workout.
The stairs were hard as usual, we'll see how I feel tomorrow from them.
146.8 lbs after workout. I can feel I'm carrying an extra 5 lbs. Although I'm off the bread, I've developed an almond butter habit. I have to knock that off to lose this last 5 lbs. Always the hardest. As usual, I have to do some fasting to get to my race weight. Once there, easier to maintain.
