I don't even have to tell you that I ran alone this morning, my splits will tell you that.
Lana had to bail due to a sick kid. I was on my own.
I ran a VERY slow warm up then started the 1200's. Oh the pain!! I quickly revised my goal from Lana's 5k pace to something closer to mine. I told myself as long as I kept them under an 8:00 pace I would be happy. First one 5:57 (7:57 pace). The two mintue jog went by too fast and it was time for the second 1200. 5:56 (7:56 pace). So far so good. Again the 2 minute jog passed much too quickly. The third 1200 hurt even more and failed to meet even my revised goal. 6:05 (8:07 pace). That did me in. I jogged the 2 minutes and pushed through the last 1200. 6:06 (8:08 pace). I slowed to a jog and headed home, the long way.
