The plan for today was 8 x 400m at 5k pace with one minute rest in between. Now, I just can't run 400m at 5k pace; I feel like I have to run them faster. My goal was 85-90 seconds. I met Lanier and Matt at the Athens track at 5:00 AM. I felt really good except for the lack of sleep. I was up until almost midnight working last night. So, I could have used an extra 3 hours of sleep. But other than that, I felt great.
- 1:30 (long quarter, 0.27, this actually was the fastest one in terms of pace)
Now, I'm just trying to stay rested, fresh, injury free, and mentally tough this week so that Monday I can truly give a quality effort.
