5k pace workout w/ Sam. 2x1600m (4:00 rests), 4x800m (2:00 rests), 30s rest then 300m sprint after the last 800.
Met at Sam's then headed to Civic field. It was windy on the track, but otherwise a nice day. Reps went as follows: 4:47, 4:46, 2:21, 2:21, 2:22, 2:21, 46s. The first 1600 felt hard, but I was leading it and the wind was worst at that point, but the rest of the work was very manageable. For some reason I thought we were only doing 2x800m, so after we finished the 2nd, Sam said "2 more," and I was a little confused. But it was good mental practice having to work harder than I thought I was initially expecting.
Also, I tried out a new pair of Mizuno Ekidens. I've been looking for a new racing flat for the roads and stumbled across this one. I liked it. It wasn't ideal for the track, as there was a little too much play in the shoe around the turns, but on the roads it should be ideal.
