New 400M workout. Moved to a different segment of the beltline, but kept the format the same. 400m down, then up,down, up, w/90 seconds of rest. Two sets of 4 with 5 minutes between sets

75.8, 79.4, 75.9, 78.8

77.2, 78.2, 77.5, 78.8

Uphill ones were good, downhill ones not so much. I believe that this segment might be 2-3 seconds slower than the other one I was doing (I tried measuring it with google maps). It was so cold and dry...yuck. Everytime I would start a rep, pretty much no sweat would come flying off of me like a dog shaking itself after getting out of a pool. Other people on the beltline were probably really disappointed.

Then I jogged to the rhino hill to do four hill blasts (first time in while). I was so tired from the workout that I originally just thought 'no way, not today'. But rhino hills are short and shaded so I thought it would be ok. Started the first one and quit after about 5 steps...yuck. Then went back down gave myself a pep talk and did it. My watch read 49.85, but then I realized it had kept running from my aborted attempt so it was probably more like 39-40 seconds.

The next 3 were 38.8, 36.6, 35.2. A 36.6 is passable and a 35.2 is good. Then I had a 4 mile cooldown to get to work. This took forever. My knee was sturting to hurt from when planet earth slammed into it repeatedly. Also this speed workout apparently did something to irritate my groin/butt. Anyway, I made it without needing to stop but I think I broke myself.

Today Trump outlined his plan for defeating radical islamic terror. He told an apochryphal story of Gen Pershing who ended the insurrection in American occupied philippines by shooting terrorists with bullets dipped in pig's blood. This is an actual thing that he said. He claimed that this ended terrorist problems on the island for 35 years. This entire story is a lie btw, but even if it wasn't...seriously this guy needs help.
