Hitting the Track again...
Running track. 1 mile warmup, 2X100 strides, then 1200 moderate (5:09), then 400 recovery, 1200 hard (5:03), 800 recovery, 4X400 moderate (1:34, 1:34, 1:36, 1:35). Felt pretty tight and tired from my ride yesterday. Definitely need to get a recovery workout in tomorrow. Will be felling the after effects tomorrow for sure. Last two 400's had some serious side stitches and was laboring.
This year, like last year, I will be riding for Mary Payton's Miracle - My friend Steve Kogos from Trigators informed me that his friend Joe's daughter, Mary Payton, was diagnosed a number of years back with Late Infantile Batten Disease. This is a disease with no cure, however, there are special experimental (and extremely expensive) treatments which have shown some significant signs of success! In order to assist with the costly treatments and research, Mary Payton's Miracle was created to raise money to find a cure, hopefully in time to save little Mary Payton as well as the many others affected by this terrible disease!
