AM: 3 miles at marathon pace with Dylan, 10.6 total.
PM: 10.7 total miles, then a weird workout (4.5 miles). Jeremy and John wanted to run 800s at 5:19 pace with a long 400 recocvery, and I also wanted to do that pace, but with a bit more effort and much less recovery. After the first 800, I switched to doing 1200s and recovered for 50-60 seconds jogging while they rejoined me at the start line. This made it pretty perfect, as I received a short jog rest that I wanted and still was able to get that pace in while doing the longer-ish items I wanted.
Workout 1x800, 400 recovery, 4x1200 with 50-60 seconds recovery, 1x1600 to finish
Int.- 800, 1200, 1200, 1200, 1200, 1600
Splits- 2:41, 4:00, 4:00, 3:57, 3:57, 5:04
Overall, I am surprised by how easy this workout was. I knew the pacing I wanted (5:19) wasn't too challenging, however, with the starting and stopping with the very short 50-60 seconds of rest, I figured I would be more taxed and mentally fatigued. Usually in a situation like this I get a sense of uncertainty, but after today I definitely have some confidence- particularly with the workout this morning, as I was on tired legs a bit.
