Was supposed to do this workout on Tuesday, but a tight left calf made me push the workout back a day. I did this in the late afternoon with Billy after work while he did 6x800m on the Dilworth Speed Loop. We started at the start line and ran back and forth between there and the 800m mark. As always, 1/3 were downhill-ish and 2/4 were uphill-ish. I got to run the first half of Billy's workout with him as he continued to finish out his interval. It worked out quite perfectly for my first legit workout back. While I didn't feel amazing and felt like I was actually running 75s instead of 78s, I was very happy with this workout. I didn't feel my calf and I was able to sustain the effort the entire way. It may not have been pretty, but I've got to be consistent to bring my fitness back to where I want it to be. Garrett biking alongside me helped tremendously and forced me to push up the inclines when I really didn't want to. Looking forward to a long run with a tempo this weekend with the Cupid's Revenge group.
