I felt AMAZING on this workout. It was Breyer than I'd felt on a run in several days... Maybe even weeks. On our DI loop warm up I was feeling top notch, and during the Kosmin test I was able to PR on my distance. And when we cooled down on DI reverse I couldn't help running in the front of the pack.

I'd say I hit my time pretty well on the twelve minute tempo we ran, but my watch kept jumping around with the mile pace. Of course, judging on the different times I saw, I averaged about a 6:40 like I needed. After we finished the tempo, and had to even out our mileage at 6, I became an idiot and miscalculated how far I, and the guys with me, still had to run. So we decided to get in our 6th mile on the track when we got back to the high school.

I want to thank Matt for believing in me and encouraging me on for a mile and a half past where I probably would have stopped or slowed down. I like running with Matt because he can really show me what my physical limits might actually be, even when I'm as out of shape as I felt on this run. I felt great on the first half of the run, when I was leading with Matt, Dave and Mitch, and when it was mostly downhill and I wasn't thinking about that pizza I had for lunch... but when we had to turn and go back up what we just ran down... That's why I'm thanking Matt for getting me to push forward.

I felt good on the mile repeats. I was able to hit below my 85% time by a good margin on the first one. On the second one I almost forgot we were supposed to go faster, and was settled in to hit right on the 85% pace. I realized my mistake within the first 200 and tried to speed up to where I needed to be. I beat my first mile by 1 second.
