-Not a bad overall day although it would have been better if I could have done this at the track instead of my street. The university track was being used by the track team when I got there. D'oh!
-warmup - a good warmup although the 1 minute rests were killing me
-100m's - I tried to keep it at 80% although it wasn't easy and wasn't sure what it meant by focus on knee lift
-hamstring stretch - I felt the stretch more in my left leg than my right and my right hip started feeling tight near the last few 100's as well. hmm.... weird.
