I didn’t have energy and I was having some sinus blockage. That basically sums it up. Yeah, excuses excuses. Anyway, it’s in the record books. 8 X800s, Z3.

  • 6:22 minute mile
  • 6:27
  • 6:49
  • 6:54 (hmmm, I wonder if my throat was really bothering me at this point)
  • 6:45
  • 6:47
  • 6:44
  • 7:00 (includes a 15 second stop to clear my throat and sinuses)

That’s about a 6:43 average. I’m happy I got two sub-6:30s. My young teammate Chris was doing sub-5:30s today. He had a younger guy to run with who kept the pace high.
