The daily log of Gavin Kelly for Tuesday, February 13, 2024

2x(1x800, 2x400, 4x200)

Daily Note

Am - 2 miles. Weather was so miserable I couldn't even gauge how my legs felt. Legs were so cold from the puddles and slush it felt like I was in the cold tub. Professors cancelled my classes though which is nice.

Pm - 3 mile warm-up, 2x(1x800m, 2x400m, 4x200m) (5.4 miles), 1.7 mile cool-down. Split: 2:21, 70, 70, 32, 32, 32, 32. 2:19, 67, 72, 33, 33, 31, 32. Legs did not have pop and they were tired but felt fine until the last set of 200s when everything caught up to me. Wish I could have stayed with Zach but I know I did not bitch out. Last time I did this my last 200s were 34 and 35 and I got cut. Likely I am the 1200m leg of the DMR and I hope I am. I think that could be my sweet spot and I am very confident in my abilities. The higher the interval, the longer I felt I could run today. I'll take the last set of 200s as tired legs, and am sure with fresh legs next weekend I will be running to the best of my ability. After how poorly XC ended, I have been waiting for indoor MACs to redeem myself. I am grateful to potentially be running 3 races, and want that challenge to help the team. All starts with getting in the fast heat of the mile this weekend. Rolled and stretched after.
