Will nature make a man of me yet?
Got my first track workout done with the other day (not including my 2 X 200m, haha). I did 15 X 400m with 1 minute rest. I decided to start out conservative (around 70 seconds), and work my way down if I felt good. My first one was 69 sec and then a whole bunch of 66′s with a handful of 65′s in there and a 64 to finish it off. Although it was much slower than I would of run in recent years I was very pleased with it considering where I’m coming from. My calf muscles aren’t too pleased with 6km in flats but I’m recovering pretty well now.

When I first got back from Alabama I had great weather for two days, then cold rain, then sunny and warm and then snow for a couple of days. Perhaps I should have stayed South a little longer but I decided to come back when I did to catch this concert:
The concert was well worth the few days of crappy weather that I endured coming back a little early. The crazy part is that I didn’t have a ticket and I went anticipating to pay a premium. The first guy I ran into selling tickets had one in the eighth row with a list price of $75. I asked him how much he wanted and he said $50! Turns out he was supposed to meet someone 45 minutes earlier to sell it and that guy didn’t show up and all the seller wanted to do was get inside with his friends asap.
