Really good workout today. 48°, mostly sunny and partly cloudy, dry, and windy made for near ideal conditions. Hit 5:40, 5:35, 5:34, 5:35, 5:32, 5:37. Iced, applied Biofreeze and IcyHot, and took ibuprofen regularly for the last day to help my hamstring heal up. Felt fine on the workout. No concerns. Going to continue with my treatment and rehabilitation. Hill sprints after were good. Felt super strong and my upper body was extremely powerful. Overall thoughts are that this is probably the strongest I have felt on a tempo run and my arm swing and turnover on the hill sprints were outstanding. Really like where my fitness is at, but need to ensure that I stay healthy so I can show up at nationals when it matters.
