Shouldve brought my ice skates out today. Literally wouldve been a better option. Iciest run that I have ever done to date. Overall perspective. Glad that I am healthy, and got to hang out with Bryant and Riley for 80 minutes.

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.
