Lunchtime Track with Mike!
Wow, I felt terrible. I really think I need to stretch more as my legs just did NOT want to turn over. Felt pretty terrible the entire time. Will definitely be taking the day off tomorrow, most especially with it being my anniversary! Anyway, the workout called for 2x1200, 2x800 and then 2x400, trying (trying being the key word) to speed up with each set. I arrived late, so I got going with a 3/4 of a mile warmup, then got the 1200's in 5:04 and 5:06, the 800's in 3:15 and 3:25, then finally the 400's in 1:36 and 1:39. Yeah see, told you I felt like crap. Anyway, finished off with a 1/2 mile cool down.
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!
