Today was the 2nd workout of the week and I had 5 x 800m w/ 2.5-minute rests on the schedule. Target pace was about 2:35.
A lot going on wrapping up the year work-wise and w/ a lot of other things on my mind, I felt lucky just to get through this workout. In all honesty I didn't even think about this one at all beforehand: just one of those show up - run - go home deals. I never do all that well on these kinds of workouts when I don't give them any thought and just go through the motions, but I made it through this one OK.
Times were: 2:37-2:34-2:35-2:34-2:35. We're supposed to get a lot of wind and rain later today carrying on for a good week straight, so I'll have to see how it goes for the next few days.
