Last track session of the season. 2x1600 + 2x800 (4:00 and 2:00 rests). 4:43, 4:43, 2:20, 2:22. 

This was originally scheduled for Saturday, and to do 3x1600 instead of 2, but at this point there is no benefit from pushing a workout like that, so I cut it down. I felt controlled and ready to race. The funny thing was starting the 2nd rep, cruising through the first 200 thinking "I can run this pace all day" and finding I started at 33s. I think I'm ready for a good 5k.

6 easy down Boulevard. Today was my last day of finals and I graduate Saturday! This has been the roughest finals week of my school career. The great thing about not racing till Sunday is having an extra to recover from this.
