slow stuff

This morning on the track at Sewanee, cloudy, bleak, 55º... wet track.   Guess I'm not ready to go every other day yet, wasn't hitting my splits.  Ran faster a week ago. At least I got some meters in.
Hoka trainers on 
350m warmup, stretches, drills 
600m - 1:51 
500m - 89 
300m - 47
I didn't take full rest between the 600 and 500, probably why the 500 was so slow.  The last interval was supposed to be a 400m but I bailed after 300 when I saw I wouldn't hit my goal of 62. I should've finished it in a 64-65, but I copped out.  Not a good day.

In order to protect my feet better, I've added a lot of stuff in my new trainers.  In addition to the stock inserts, a thin shock protectant insole called Noene, then some Profoot plantar supports, and then some custom cut 5mm gel soles that I placed under the stock insert on the outside of my forefoot where I strike.  My heels barely fit in my shoe with heavy socks but it's very soft. Should be protective. I have 2 pairs of active trainers, one new, the other just slightly worn.  I have a third that I use in the gym.

I still need to lose 5 lbs.  146.7 lbs after workout.

May try to hit the stadium stairs on Friday.
