-kip swing - the first set my arm felt a bit tight but when I tried for the 2nd set that hurt so I terminated the set immediately
-Run/walk 1.5 miles - W
oxtrot!!! My intention today was to go out and run at the pace I've been running on the 400's and 800's and see where I'd get, At 3:30 I was only at 0.45 miles where I was shooting for 0.5 miles/3:30 I kind of got discouraged as I tried to make up time by running even faster but fatigued myself by 0.7 miles and walked a bit. I was pretty disgusted with myself by the time everything was over. I also think my nike+ ipod thing isn't calibrated correctly because for a course that is supposed to be 1.5 miles it said I had only gone 1.42 miles. Either I'm even slower than I think I am or this thing needs to be recalibrated to measure distance correctly. The http://www.usatf.org/routes/map/
says it's 1.51 miles. Urgh.
