Righted the ship. I made sure I got enough carbs ( sorry ladies, carbs, not protein ) for several days prior.
Even though it was still relatively cold (California cold) Tom and I went to the track and banged out 400-400-600-400-400-600-400-400 at a sub 8 pace. We both felt strong. The 400's are starting to drift down to 1:55 and the 600's were around 2:55. Of course the goal isn't really faster. It's longer.
Whatever it is, we have a ways to go.
