Michelle and I met at MC a little early to avoid the crowd with a plan for 6x800 cutdown starting at 5K pace. Warmed up for a mile and did 3 striders and started the workout... In Dirk fashion, here were my splits:
2:28 (4 seconds too fast...)
We didn't do a 6th because we were pretty exhausted after 5 (attributed to our recent races). I bet the too-fast first 800 also wore us out. Michelle ran consistent, despite also going out too fast for the first one, and finishing at a 5:00 pace.
A good workout in all, this shows I'm ready to smash my mile PR later in the summer and will make my current 5K pace feel easier at Du Nats.
