Beautiful morning on the track at City Park. 5k pace workout: 7x800m (400m/2:00 jog), 400m (600m jog) then 4x200m @ mile pace (slow 200m jog).

2:31, 2:31, 2:29.9, 2:28, 2:29, 2:28, 2:28, 74

33.1, 33.8, 32.6, 33.0

The first 3 reps I relaxed over the final 200m and cost myself a second or two. 

Awesome workout, I felt like I pushed it to an appropriate level of discomfort. My goal race is in 2 weeks, and I wish I had a little more time to prep. Another few weeks and I think I'd see the laps drop to 72s. Illness hit at just the wrong time, but I'm grateful to be running now. The discomfort in my legs all day since the workout is so satisfying.

I think my illness is returning. I was up late last night with a sick baby, and since about yesterday morning all my symptoms are returning. I had scheduled a mile repeats session @ 10k pace this morning, but considering I'm still towards the top of the downhill spiral a swapped it for levee repeats. 

12 x levee sprints (~40s)

Good choice, I think. I've felt a little woozy since the run, and I think the mile repeats would have been too much. I'm hoping the doc will reissue some meds and I can be good to go for this session on Saturday.

Race: Crescent City Classic (6.214 Miles) 00:35:09

I'd hoped with the second round of antibiotics I'd be good to go, but I needed a few more days. Race conditions were a little warm (low-70s and humid) but I don't think it was a factor. I hit the first 2 miles on target (5:17, 5:19) but I started coughing after that, and it was a long death to the finish from there. 

So it goes. Looking on the bright side I dropped most of the dad weight from last year (high of 160 to 145 on race day), so it sets me up well for a good year of training. From here my goal is to get up to 80+ mpw through the summer and be ready for a good half when cool weather rolls around again.
