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.
