Grant didn't wake up smh. Stride +3x300 +200 in 44.3, 42.3, 42.0, 28.9. Felt good, but sick to my stomach. 


Might end my training for this season here. I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed/stressed lately because of classes and running and lots and lots of physics HW. I could run some PR's, but with only a month of training + no base training I doubt I could hit a low 1:5x or 3:5x So yeah, I might take a couple weeks off and actually relax. It'll be nice to go a few days without constantly thinking about the next workout or splits. Peace!

3x400, 2x400, 1x400 w/ 100m  rest between repeats, 4 min between sets. Tired from two workouts and a hard strength session on Monday, and back stretch wind was a wall today. Trying to get faster every set. Ran 64, 65, 65, 62, 64. The 5th one told me I was probably just gonna hurt a lot for another 64, so I stopped at 5. I've read that if you can do three sets of these your average pace is your mile pace. That 100m rest killed. Finished with some 80m starts and a 150m finish.

Baking in the furnace. Felt extremely sore, but after the run and strides, I felt fantastic. Getting to the point where you can feel the heat coming from the asphalt.

AM - up at the crack of dawn for some tempo before classes so I'd have enough recovery for tonight's speed workout. I don't do morning runs, my legs usually take ages to wake up. 800, 1000, 1000, 400 w/ 2-3 min recovery in 2:13, 3:12, 3:11, 71 on the hilly roads. 400 was supposed to be another 1000, but the wind hit hard and I started getting a wicked side stitch.

PM - Speed! 2x(150, 200, 150) w/ 2-3 min rest between repeats, and 5 minutes rest between sets. Times were 19.3, 25.9, 19.0, 19.4, 26.8, 19.8. High 80's out, but I stayed strong! Anything below 19.5 means a 25s 200m if I sustained another 50m(which I could have done on all), so the first 4 I was rolling. Last two I didn't feel too tired, I got a bad blister on my foot for running in new spikes sockless and my feet were burning because of it. Great double! 

Lifting, stretching, and core after. Good day to get faster!
