After my last workout where I could barely run 2:40's and 32's for 800m and 200m intervals, I thought today would be terrible too. I did 2x600, 400, 300 w/ 300m rest and I wanted to hit  1:52, 1:52, 70, and 50, and I honestly thought that might be a stretch, with every run since the crappy workout 9 days being pretty weak, and it being super windy out. I ran 1:43, 1:40, 64, 45. I had some 200's and 150's after the 300 but I got pretty sick post-300m. I've never thrown up during a workout, and I didn't today, but man I was close. I felt really good on these intervals, all of the splits on them were even, which I've always had trouble doing. The first 600m felt incredibly easy, and it ended up tying my fastest 600m to date, then I laced up my spikes and ran a new fastest 600m. Part of me wanted to hammer a 58 and 42 on the 400 and 300, but I didn't want this to be a workout where I go all out. Felt great on the cooldown, my second run is in an hour or so, so I guess that will be the real test of how much I'm spent.

5 miles later. Felt good, not tired.
