8 Miles @ MP

Objective : 8 miles @ mp

Recovery : straight through

Keenyans : Me and James

Result :

5:17 / 5:17 / 5:16 / 5:16 / 5:15 / 5:10 / 5:10 / 5:06

Overview :  The temperature was ideal.  The wind however was something to combat.  Thanks to James for getting in some 400's and 200's.  He just came off of a marathon PR of 3:14 and he was nice enough to pull what he could.  It was very helpful (made the workout).  This is the first taper week and I am already starting to feel pretty good.  The workout was still tough though.  I had a big weekend with an 8K PR (23:46) so I think things are going well.  The official results say it was 4.8 but they didn't update the course that was actually ran.  It was the same certified 8K from the past.  Trust me, I went to great length to verify the distance.  The hay is in the barn so now I just have to get strong.

  1. Thanks Justin. That was fun trying to keep up with you. I think that's the fastest two miles I've ever done.
