Went to the Y with V for 4 x (1M at 9:00, 8:30, 8:00, and 7:30 paces, plus 4:00 lift/stretch/self-massage).
I set out to do my sit 'n kick reps workout. Sit 'n kick reps workout is 5 x (400…rest 30 sec…and then 200, then 1200m jog). The goal for the 400 is 64, and the goal for 200 is 28. The modified workout is 5 x (400...rest 30 sec...and then 150); the extra modified is 60 seconds rest. The 400s were supposed to be in 65, and the goal for 150 was 22.
I warmed up and stretched in the cool wind.

Mon-Went to the Y with V for 3 x (.80M at 7:30 pace, plus 4:00 lift/stretch).
Sun-Connected with several of my teammates at Germantown Academy for a workout. My initial plan was to repeat last year's Christmas Eve effort of 10x200 in two sets of five, with 60 seconds' rest between repeats and 6 min rest between sets. However, after consulting with the crew (Chuck K., Rob, Wayne, Duncan (in from CA), John, and Bruce), we decided on 9x150 with 2:30-2:45 rest, each set of three one second faster than the previous. We'd loosely divide into two groups. The pacing for the first group was 22, 21, and 20; the pacing for the second group was 24, 23, 22.
My times were:
Wayne did two in a row, then skipped the third for each of the first two sets. He had to leave early for a holiday party, so he stepped off the track after number effort 5. He did a total of four. Rob stepped out early, after number 6.
Turns out Wayne's keys had been locked in his car. ARGH.
Chuck S., Bob R., and a woman whose name I did not catch did their own thing, 1000s I think. Tom Jennings showed up at the tail end of our workout to wish us well, reminding us that he'll be 75 his next birthday.
