It was cold. It was windy. It was raining. And the track was muddy. But I was out there and doing it. My training schedule called for a 10 minute warm-up, 6x400m (with 400m rests) and a 10 minute cool-down.
About two laps into my warm-up I started feeling good. Before I could say "touchdown" I was knockin' 'em out of the park:
- Split 1: 1:51 (Although I'm pretty sure I accidentally cut this one short)
- Split 2: 1:56
- Split 3: 1:58
- Split 4: 1:52
- Split 5: 1:56
As I rounded the last corner of my sixth repeat and prepared to give the last 50m everything I had with a sprint into the finish...
The lights went out. I'm talking pitch black, dark as...
Some insight into my writing process:
Me: What's really dark?
Me: Yeah, besides that.
Jason: The center of a black hole.
