Excellent 800's

What a gorgeous night!  It is now about 8:15 pm and it still says 68 degrees on my computer's thermometer.  Is it really March??

Tonight I met Jesse on the track for a session of 5 x 800 with decreasing rest and 3 x 200 at the end, each progressively faster.  Plus, I had a chance to try out my new racing flats AND a pair of my new Oiselle shorts.   

Here's how it went... 

2 mile warm-up

5 x 800:
2:48.7 ~ 2:30 rest
2:49.9 ~ 2:00 rest
2:46.8 ~ 1:30 rest
2:47.6 ~ 1:30 rest
2:45.7 ~ 1:30 rest

3 x 200:
36.7 ~ 1:00 rest
35.10 ~ 1:00 rest

2 mile cool down

Jesse wanted us to hit the 800's between 2:50 and 2:55.  The first one was a little under that pace so we just rolled with it.

Overall, I felt great, the shoes were good, and I think I'm ready to race on Sunday.  First one in a long time!   

Off to read a little bit and then...lights out.

Have a great night!

  1. wow, that looks like a challenging, yet comfortable workout. You're rounding into great shape, what do you think you can run in a 5k? sub 18:45?!?
