2 mile WU, 3x400, 1x300m on the river walk trail. Hills and humidity made for hell. I went 70, 71, 70, 47. Wanted to do more but I could feel the wheels falling off on number 4 so I decided to stop at 300. I definitely felt the upage in miles this morning, and I felt flat on the run too. 

3 miles shakeout. Felt good. 2 outside, then it started to rain so I did the last mile on the treadmill, starting at 6:50 pace and working down to 4:50. Lifted after. I'm definitely gonna be sore from that stuff.

River walk in the torrential downpour. Only saw one other person, Antibahs Kosgei(Kenyan, 28 min 10k guy, all-American). It felt nice to know I'm not the only person grinding out here alone. And we were running at about the same pace too. Probably 6:40's.

Shakeout a couple hours later on the RW again. Saw that there were 1/4 mile marks, so I decided to do a couple fast in 69. They included sharp turns, rolling hills, and wet asphalt with scarce traction, so I couldn't really get going, but it was an effort. Faster than yesterday's 400's but a couple seconds.

4x400 in 85, 80, 75, 70. 3x150 coming through the 100 in low 13's. Yesterday was the workout to tell me I still have my speed. Today was the workout to tell me I lost all my aerobic fitness. Those 400's hurt. That means I'm gonna these next couple weeks will be rife with tempo runs and doubles. This next month is gonna be one heck of a grind, but I'm glad to be back.

3 mile shakeout later. 80 degrees out. That's probably why my heart rate was elevated, and not being out of shape.

lifted around 2 PM. At around 8PM I decided to suck it up and go run. Went pretty well. 10 min WU, 3x~300m hill sprints walking down for recovery. CD for five. 48 for all three. Cough was really bad when I lifted, not awful on the warmup, and I didn't even notice it on the sprints. Sprints definitely hurt. I ate spicy food and drank pop maybe thirty minutes before the run so that stunk, but man I'm glad I was able to be active today. The sickness is fading.
