August 29th: 5:47am wakeup. Out the door for 5 miles (35:08) by 6am. Lunch already made and a honey wheat bagel for the ride to work. Made it to work by 7:30am because traffic wasn't terrible and I left early enough. I was able to park way closer and not make the 10 minute trek from the far parking lot. Rice and beans. Work 7:30am-4pm.
Home by 4:30pm to wash some dishes and get ready for the workout at UAlbany. Made it to the workout early. 3 mile (20 + strides) warmup at 5:50ish. Workout was a pyramid style. 4x400, 3x800, mile, 3x800, 4x400. Slowest interval being the mile at a goal of 5:00. 73, 73, 71, 73, 2:28, 2:27, 2:28, 4:57, 2:25, 2:24, 2:25, 70, 67, 67, 67. Boom. 3 mile (22:00) cooldown.
Team meeting at Josh's house to get an update of the fall season. Pizza. Chilled there until 9:45am. Home to shower and head to bed. Threw on the calf sleeves to reduce the massive amount of swelling from the workout.
20 miles on the day. Great day of training and all around productive day.
