AM: Big turnout this morning at track- probably about 15-20, which for 5am is pretty impressive. Workout was 12x400 with 200 recoveries. Stayed with the group pacing the front. I tried to pull them a bit the best I could, trying not to get too far ahead.
Splits- 1:17, 1:12, 1:14, 1:12, 1:14, 1:13, 1:12, 1:11, 1:11, 1:12, 1:13, 1:10
I was pumped for this workout. This was my best workout in a while. I was recovering well after each item, I was talking, I was leading, I felt strong. I was pretty geared up for it. This afternoon is going to be a mess, so I think (as of right now) my plan is to just run John's paces and work on my anaerobic capacity at the end of each item this afternoon. We'll see.
PM: 7.5 miles, 3 of them relatively fast at effort. Workout was two sets of 3x800 with 200 recoveries and a single 400 recovery between the two sets. Did it as a cutdown style and worked on some anaerobic capacity during the final two intervals. It felt pretty easy, but I am a bit tired from all of the faster running.
I am so sick of this hot, humid weather. It's literally almost November. When will it stop?!
