Back to the colder weather for a 4×800. I stuck to the paved trails this morning to get better traction. Today’s rest was 15 seconds shorter than last week’s 800’s. I know it wasn’t really that, but more related to the fatigue of life and the fact that I woke up at 4:30am to get the workout in that I really started to feel it. The last two were really hard. The 3rd one was the hardest as it included the climb to Golden Valley Road – I actually had to stop for a few seconds to catch my breath. My stomach was also hurting by that point. After finishing my last 800, I ran past a group of Sheriff’s getting ready for a pre-dawn raid.
Here are the splits:
3:59 (I think auto-pause saved my time on this one)
I did about a mile warmup and cool down for a total of 4.95 miles in 46:44.
