Practice has been pushed back to 7 because of the later sunrise, sweet! An extra half hour to sleep :) Today it was just the non-traveling team at practice. After warmups and form mile we did a mile warmup then started the workout, 400s. Full workout was 10, but because of my hip coach would only let me do half. I was worried the whole warmup because it was hurting more than it did Saturday, but I really wanted to do 400s. I love 400s. So, I didn't want to tell coach, but at the same time I didn't want to stupidly run through it and injure myself further. As it turns out Coach found out anyways, haha I told him I'd push through it. That's when he said I was only doing half. Mmkay probably a good idea. So hard to tell when to push through and when not to. It was hurting more on the cool down, sooo we'll see how it feels tomorrow. Hopefully I can race this weekend. 

Anyways, we were shooting for 82s. I hit 84, 78, 79, 81, 88. The last one I mentally gave up, simple as that. It's been a while since I've done speed on the track. I've got a lot to work on, pacing included.

.75 cool down. Was originally going to do more but hip was hurting, and the increase in pain from when I first started scared me a bit.
