I'm back on AP to track my progress toward senior games sprints . . . thanks for the motivation.

Nice thing about not training for . . . 9 months? is that I'm uninjured going into training. Hope to keep it that way by very conservative approach to training and ending workouts at the first sign of a problem. My entire goal is exercise at the max intensity that will not create an injury. Not an easy task, but I think I'm much more aware of my limits as I age. One key is tracking total training volume and stress level and just paying attention to body cues. AP should help. bh

well in st.chaz it only goes to 800. so might as well do them all as a speed workout.

nice! I might do some of those track workouts in the Baylor program you sent, scaled down to master level; I feel even 200m is too long, could work on 40m starts out of the blocks and perhaps some 300/ 600 type tempo efforts just to get a semblance of fitness. Even to run a single 200m . . . "fast" . . . I need a ton more fitness. Dying 20m before the line is not good. Definitely need to run in "cruise control" the first 100m. bh
