AM - Track day at City Park. I knew that the recent good weather wasn't here to stay just yet, but still it hurt to feel the full force of summer's lingering humidity this morning. 80F air/ 77F dew point. 4x200m, 6x400m, 4x200m @ mile pace, 2:1 timed recoveries.

The best news about the morning is that my lower shin was pain free. After the brief but intense twinge from Wednesday I was worried I'd done something more serious. 

33.1, 33.1, 33.3, 32.7

67.9, 67.9, 66.9, 67.0, 67.4, 67.8

33.1, 33.2, 33.4, 33.3

I experienced a backslide on the final 2 400s, which is certainly due to overheating. I felt great up to that point, and my effort level was greatest on #5 & #6. 

PM - 4 easy w/ Rylie.
