Track workout with Mike
Wow... has it been awhile since I was on the track. Decided to do 4x1200 and just deciding to see what pace we fell into. Got going with a jog from the gym to the track followed by a couple laps on the track to warmup. Got going, knocking out the 1200's in 5:07, 5:19 and 5:13, before having to call it a workout after 800 at 3:35. Felt ok, but got side-stiches towards the last effort, hence the shortened last effort. Good to get back on the track again though.
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!
