Considering my sleep has been screwed up every night this week, the workout was a success. The sprints feel a little tight, and I’m still cautious. I’m a few tenths off where I was at my peak in January. Decelerating on the 6th sprint I began to tie up on the left leg – sprint workout over. Still building strength.
