Met Dimitri over at WVC this morning. It was kinda warm and humid. We did a warmup and then ran 4 x 800 meters ( on the tennis court loop ) with a 200 meter recovery in between reps.
3:43-3:45-3:45-3:41 at 90%.
Had to fight to keep my HR down on the last two. It popped up to 174-175 several times but a slight adjustment in effort dropped it right down again into range. No complaints though. Another good workout.
We warmed down around campus afterwards.
Close to six miles total.
Dimitri has a renewed respect for doing the reps off track. Yeah, it's downhill over the first 300 meters but after that you're flat or climbing.
