AM - off.

PM - 3 hilly miles, 3x(3x300m) w/ 100m recovery between repeats on sets #1 and #2, 3 minutes rest after #7 and #8, and 400m recovery between sets, ending with another 3 hilly miles. Ran 54, 55, 51 for set 1, 51, 49, 49 for set two, and 45.5, 45.1, and 41.2 on set three. Very windy out. Felt fine, for the most part, I think I was able to balance the scales of not pushing too hard and overheating in the humidity well, but man that last one hurt. Just went hard, and collapsed and gasped for air in the fetal position for a good two or 3 minutes after. I think I definitely could have run a 40-low in spikes. I wanted to be fit enough to run 54-second 400's in workouts by the time Christmas break came around, and that last 300 would have been a 54 if sustained another 100m(being that I was in road flats, I find that reasonable). Since my speed is where I wanted it to be in 4-5 months if training went perfectly, I'm extremely happy, because that means I'll just have to sustain or barely get faster on my short speed, which means I can focus on my weakness, strength. I'm going to start getting back down to the low 150's/high 140's for my weight. I'm 17x lbs now, and I think by dropping 25 pounds I could be a lot better off for it(I got in the 130's last year, which was pretty crazy for a 6'0 guy. However I only achieved that through running 100+ miles per week for multiple consecutive weeks and eating maybe 1500 calories a day, so I think that was a bit too much).
