Pre race workout
6x800m with 2:00 rest at 2:35, 2:38, 2:37, 2:37, 2:38, 2:38
3.3 mile cool down for 10 miles total
Caleb and I opted to sleep in and do this workout in the afternoon instead. I was open to workout options as it was pre-race and really just wanted company. Caleb had an 800m workout prescribed as one of his last workouts leading up to the Boston Marathon, so I said yes and headed to the Dilworth Speed Loop with him to get this done.
There isn't too much to report for the intervals except that we went out too fast on the first interval and I felt like my legs paid for it on the others. I felt really good and strong, but I would have rather finished in a 2:35 than begun with one. Caleb and I were together for the first 4 intervals, but on the final two, he fell back a little bit and I was left to push hard on my own terms.
I'm ready for a nice 8k in Greensboro on Saturday, but I'm definitely not looking forward to the hills around the course.
