AM - WU to the track. It rained all night so it was basically impossible to not get soaked in any of the 6 lanes(I've never seen a track like this before(that wasn't a 200m track)). Did 3x400 in 64, 64, 65. 200m rest, which was a little harder than 4 min rest felt. I felt a little tired from 2 days of traveling, but I could have done more. The reason I stopped early was there weren't any unlocked bathrooms and I was starting to feel sick bc of that. OG Vic's felt great. Another note is while rough-housing with my younger cousin on the trampoline yesterday, he landed on my head while I was on the ground and screwed up my neck. I can turn it to the left, but it's pretty hard to turn it the other way. 

PM - Awesome workout around 10PM! 2x400 on a net downhill on the roads in 59, 54 +4x200m hills. First 400 I slowed down the last 200, so I told myself "get out fast, and don't relax at all" and, as the time shows(3 sec PR) it went well! Def gonna make hitting 57's and 64's feel that much easier.

4 miles of hills + 4x200m on the roads going up and down a very slight incline. 200's were all under 28, and I started the next one after about 60 seconds because that's when I felt ready to go. Core and stretching after. Starting to get fit again...

6 miles around lilburn. I have never seen a more ludicrously hilly place in my life. Made sure to keep a good effort going up the hills. Finished with 3x200m around 3k pace(34).

AM - 4x1000m w/ 400m recovery. First 3 on the partially muddy soccer fields, last one on the roads. 3:11, 3:09, 3:06, 2:58. very cold and very windy. Warmed up after the first k though so that was good. I've never done 1000m repeats but I have done 1200m repeats before and I usually come through the k in 3:20 so this was pretty good. Felt good to keep the heart rate up for a while. Def gonna take a nap before my PM session. Glad I took yesterday off because my hamstrings felt great! They were tight all yesterday.

No PM speed bc I was busy. HUGE S/O to my good friend Zack for getting his mission call! He's a very righteous and fast dude and I'm glad to call him a friend.

AM - Shakeout before going to the bodies anatomy exhibit. Around 6:00 pace, but for only two miles that's not too impressive.

PM - 5x400. First 3 in 57.2, 57.9, 55.2. Told myself "if you get under 54.5 you can stop at 4". I ran 52.87 but I'm certain I stopped the watch a couple meters short. Still, I'd call it fast enough! Def working that turnover! Gained a few pounds over break, so I'll be even better w/o that weighing me down.

Easy recovery + 3 ~300m strides getting some life in the legs. Hilly. Legs aren't sore and nothing really hurts, just tired from yesterday.
