One of those rare days I'd rather just go hide under a rock and hope stuff goes away. But I went out and did the workout anyway. I wish I could say I channeled the stress, or blew off some steam, or what have you. But no, I just slogged it out and worked on staying focused on the task at hand. Despite not feeling physically or mentally well, I actually turned in a very respectable workout for me. Kinda surprised to be honest.
2x6x400 (200m recovery jog ranging from 58-69 as I got weaker).

    Well, I don't know Darren. I don't want to make all the ladies swoon and all the guys jealous. That's just a little tacky.

    That's at least two requests now for a short shorts pic Aric. You don't want to disappoint the people.

    Indeed, I will have to put up or shut up I suppose. I'll get Angela to take a picture later this week. Hopefully the mojo translates to digital pixels. Kachow.

    Good to run hard on days like this I find. REally nice workout here Aric, well done.

    Solid set of 400's, nice job - sometimes a run helps with the mood, sometimes it doesn't, but it's still far better than not having done the workout.

    Effort should be predicated on needed outcome, not mood. Sadly, I fall short of that too often.

    Awesome. That's what it's all about, right there! I think it was your shorts that got you through though. Perhaps you could post a pic?
