Track workout tonight

We did 16 X 400, Z3 @:15 sec rest.  Did okay.  I planned to do 4 laps at faster than usual pace and I was successful.  However, there were 4 laps that I did slow; one I tucked in behind someone when I shouldn’t have–caused me a sub-7.

Here are the numbers (laps and pace per mile)

  1. 5:49, fast
  2. 6:58 <–huh?  I slowed down too much
  3. 6:16
  4. 6:22
  5. 6:05, fast
  6. 6:28
  7. 6:32
  8. 6:45
  9. 6:03, fast
  10. 7:03, slow–tucked in behind someone
  11. 6:51, slow
  12. 6:39
  13. 5:58, fast
  14. 6:32
  15. 6:51, slow
  16. 6:39

Before you get misled, 400s are not like milers.  So just because the pace says 5:49 doesn’t mean I’ve ever been there.  My fastest recorded mile is 6:16.  I’m pretty happy with laps 1, 5, 9, and 13; planned to run those faster, and just being able to do it is great to see.
