It's been 4 days since the 3 mile workout, and the almost nothing 2 mile jog in ice yesterday has me set up for another hard day. The goal is to run an interval workout at sub 6 min miles, so I picked 800s with just a short 60 sec rest. It went as follows:
3:02, 2:55, 2:55, 2:53, 2:48, 2:49.
This was the 5 lap track, and I definitely felt a drop in pace on the two wide curves. I liked the progressive drop in time,but I had the feeling another sub 2:50 might not happen.
I am always torn, do I go for 8 or shut in down BEFORE the pace begins to drop? There is always a reason to stop early, and mine was the long run I have planned for tomorrow.
