PM: 5 miles in a thunderstorm

5:00,4:54,2:23,2:23,2:21. I was able to run quickly with little effort. Most likely because the weather was decent. However, the recoveries were longer than I prefer, which always bothers me for VO2 max interval work. Not even sure it makes much of a difference, but I like it about 75% of the time of he interval.

PM: off

26:23. Fast one today for a standard tempo. Good weather. Focused on relaxing and ran with Greg until he slowly pulled away on the last two. Did not want to push too hard just to stay with him. Although It felt like I was a bit faster than tempo effort the last 1.5 miles. Apparently my watch said I was running full miles for the last four, must be all the time I was in lane two. Good workout capped off with 2x200m. 1600m splits: 5:23,5:18,5:15,5:16,5:11 + 29,29
