Finding Luck at the Track, But Not Much Speed

Five-leaf Clover 1200 meters warm-up
4x100 meters striders
3x1600 meters hard (200)(400)
1200 meters warm-down

total: 5.125 miles

Wind: S at 10 mph
Humidity: 37%
course: COD track

The plan was originally to run 5000 meters pretty hard and see how it went. It didn't. The juice isn't there. Insead, I broke it into mile repeats.

Race conditions should improve the time, but not enough.
  • 7:39 (200)
  • 7:53 (400)
  • 7:47
My original guestimated time for Saturday's race of 23:30 looks unreasonably right now. 24:00 is where my money is going to be bet.

Oh, the clover? That's one of two five-leaf clovers I found in front of the bleachers. All of that work at Fermi and Argonne they are doing a few miles away is working for good.
