Daily Note

PM: 3 mile WU, 6x400 with 1 min recovery and 4x200 full recovery, 2 mile CD.
Splits were 77/79/77/74/74/71/28.2/28.5/27.4/26.9.
Solo workout in the cold, wind, and the occasional light snow, it was not a day for the weak-minded. Went into it knowing that any rep could get ruined by a long gust of wind that would put me in a dead stop, but knew that this resistance would only produce a more valuable effort so I went at it with the same intensity as last week's workout. Seemed like the backstretch had the worst wind, but still no tailwind on the home stretch. Was fighting hard from the beginning and had to mentally lock into this one and fight what the body wanted to do. Legs were hurting real bad after the second to last rep and I knew that I could cut it there, call it a good workout even considering the tough conditions of the day. But I decided to stop the bitching and groaning and get my ass back on the line to make that rep better than the one before it because that is what I Widener man does.
