Warm up and run over to MIT. GimpyFoot at first felt somewhat uncomfortable, but the various tissues seemed to loosen up as I ran along. I considered aborting the track workout, but when I arrived at MIT, it felt good enough.

First track workout since the rise of GimpyFoot! I joined the CSU crew at the MIT track on a drizzly day for 12x400 at alternating 5k, 3k pace. Only five were in attendance: Giacomo, Terry, SGB, Patrick, and me. I had planned to run 8, but I missed the first two due to tardiness and felt like staying with the group. My target times based on my recent running time trials were 87 for 5k pace and 84 for 3k pace, and I deliberately backed off to try to hit those. Doing so took great restraint, especially with Giacomo blasting 79/72s. He ran 65s for the last 400.

Run home; I was motivated to hurry home, and pushed into tempo pace. As my glasses were obscured by drizzle, and I lacked a light, I was wary of bad footing. However, I stopped for a bit at traffic lights and still ran comfortably under 5:00/km. GimpyFoot felt ok.
