pretty killer workout today. 20x400 with 1 minutes off between each, about the most self-imposed torture you can put on yourself! 

Hit all my splits between 1:18-1:20, was very steady throughout. The last 2 repeats I hit 76 and 74 seconds respectively as i opened it up just a little to see what i had left--not much it turned out. Below are my mile splits all added up:

5:17, 5:16, 5:16, 5:16, 5:08

26:13 total, a little under 5:15 avg pace for each of the 400s.

weights afterwards, and im spent!

Weird workout today just because of how it all transpired. Originally, today was to be 4x1600 day, however i was really tight upon starting my warmup so i just decided to hit 7 easy and do speed work tomorrow. About 10 minutes in to the run i decided to ramp it up and here is what happened:

1- 7:05.5

2- 6:48.8

3- 6:03.6

4- 5:59.0

5- 5:45.5

Took about a minute rest here, first 5 miles, 31:42, 6:20 pace with big time negative splits!4 and 5 were huge!

6- 6:38.8

7- 7:24.7

Total run time- 45:46, 6:32 avg pace, weights afterwards
