Started the warm up with Bryant and Riley. Riley wasnt feeling the best. Verge of getting sick, so he bagged the run all together and went home. Bryant and I continued the warm up to 4 miles and threw in 6X20 second strides.

Workout

15 minute tempo @ around 5:35 pace

5 minute jog

10X1 minute hill sprints with equal distance jog.

Couple mile cool down

Workout seemed easy enough on paper but overall it got pretty tough, especially the last 4 hill intervals. Pretty brutal.

PM

4 miles easy on the Tready at work.
