Last night Dad and I ran 8.25 miles with 5X600 at 7:00 mpm pace. That equates to 2:37 per 600. Of course, Dad and I couldn't figure out that math beforehand and we thought we needed to run 2:24s. So my 600s came out like this:
I was so mad that I was struggling to get 2:24. It wasn't until hours later that I realized, dude, I was fast!
Only about 4-1/2 weeks until the marathon.
