Objective: 3 x 1600 at "threshold" pace (about 6:50)
Results: 6:58 / 6:43 / 6:37 / 6:42
Overview: My goal was to not start out too fast and to try to find a sustainable pace. I also wanted to stick to 3 repeats so as not to overdo it early in my training. Problems arose when I started getting passed by other runners doing the same workout and the competitive side of me just couldn't let that continue. I was feeling good and it felt good to run fast, even though it was probably a bit faster than I should have been going. After my fast third repeat the adrenaline was pumping and I didn't even consider stopping there. It was a fun workout.
