Workout Success + Fail

3x1k @ 3:20-24 with 2:30 rest
2k @ 535-530, 3:30 rest
3x1k @ 3:20-24 with 2:30 rest

2.5M mile warmup
3x1k in 3:23, 3:21, 3:03 (stopped early for pit stop)
3:30 rest
2k in 5:36/1:2, 3:30 rest
3x1k in 3:24, 3:24, 1:20 for 400m (all w 2:30 rest)

Put simply, I had stomach problems in today’s workout.  In the early morning hours on the speed loop with Eric and David, I started off feeling great in the first two intervals and then things began to very quickly unravel.  At first I was pushing the pace on the first two and after that I was barely surviving...not because I was tired, but because I couldn’t control that I had caught some sort of mini stomach bug (which I didn’t realize until after the workout).  That being said, I’m actually pretty happy about the splits I was able to hit.  Obviously I would have preferred to run faster for the last set of 1k’s but that just wasn’t in the cards for me today. A mini stomach bug is going around work, so I think that I caught that and worked from home the rest of the day.  Sometimes you just can’t control everything!
