I started running in 2010 and have (mostly) kept it a habit ever since!

AM: 11.4 miles at the track, 3.75 of them sub 6:00/mile to help out Dylan and to get them tired for this afternoon.

PM: 9.1 total miles at the track, about 3 miles fast.  Workout- 4x1200 with 600 recoveries with John and Jeremy and four others.  I wanted the intervals to be honest, so I made them quick from the start and let Jeremy know that I wanted sub 3:45 (5:00/mile pace) for each.  They seemed concerned, but I knew it was time to start getting a bit serious and stop wasting these training opportunities, especially with 6 of us out there together.  John hung on for one, and then dropped off a bit, but  Jeremy was right there on each one which was nice.

Splits-  3:47, 3:44, 3:41, 3:42

Overall, I felt pretty in control.  I did feel the need to gear myself up and focuse for each one, but I never felt as if I was not going to get under 5:00/mile pace, which was the goal.
