I was on my own today. Tom's in Cheeseville aka Wisconsin. Danny was putting on a race at Lockmart aka Lockheed.
I still went to the track because the house cleaners were at home. I jogged easily and sluggishly for twenty minutes before doing some short strides. I then dove into the workout. 5 x 200 (200 jog). 44-43-42-42-40. Warmed down afterward. 40 minutes all together. Gatorade and a power bar.
I didn't push the 200's but they were still tough. The 200 jog recovery made them challenging. Doing them alone made them challenging. This workout tells me that I have a long way to go.
