Married, working, training. While my wife has nixed all future attempts to grow glorious mustaches, she has been supportive of my crazy running dreams. Life is good.

Track day! And the weather has hit full summer mode as of today. 70 degrees and sunny. Gotta love it.

I struggled some in this workout, which I think is safe to say was due to Saturday's race and pulling an all nighter last night to get some school work done. Still a good workout, I just definitely wasn't firing on all cylinders.

It started out fine with 2x1600m in 4:46. Sam told me to do 3 16s if I felt good and end with 2x800, but I could tell by the end of the 2nd that breaking it up would be best. So I did 4 more 800s. 2:22, 2:23, 2:28, 2:24. Then a 100m jog (~30s) and then a fast 300m in 47. I developed a side ache on that 3rd 800 that slowed me some. I wanted to hit them all in 2:22 or faster. But no worries, I just need some rest and things will be back to normal.

As usual, 2:1 rests on everything.
