I wanted to keep the volume low and the intensity high today.

10 X 200 on the Highland High track. Started at 39 seconds and worked down to 36 on 1-9. For the last one I took a longer break and ran 32.1

Had a hard time deciding what I needed to do today so I didn't get out untill 1 pm. Legs felt heavy. Happy with the workout though. Just following the "something of value" philosophy.

Ran without a shirt in the 50 degree sunshine and got a rare winter dose of Vitamin D. If Donald Trump had seen me he would have concluded that climate change is real.

You've inspired me. Maybe I'll run shirtless tomorrow morning in sub-freezing temps. Although no one likes seeing my pasty white chest.
