Track workout with Mike P!
Took off at lunch today to meet Mike P over at Bolling AFB track for a bit of a track workout. Following a mile warmup, got into the workout which was 4x[800 @ 5K pace, 100 jog, 300 hard]. I finished the 800s in 3:29, 3:26, 3:28, 3:31 and the 300s in 1:10, 1:13, 1:15, 1:14, finishing off with a nice 1/2 mile cool down before heading over to the Bolling Fitness Club to shower before heading back to work. Was really laboring on the last set, but overall it went pretty well. Still having trouble with the blister under my big toe on my left foot. Hopefully it just goes away soon! Anyway, with Jury Duty tomorrow (BLAH!) I will probably be forced to have an offday. We will see...
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!
