Test for how well I could run today. 800s in teams of 3, each person offset by 400m so run one lap with one person then they get replaced by the next one starting out.
Warm up wasn't great in terms of cough so thought it best I do my own thing rather than group up - but didn't allow for how much I attract soon to be army officers and found I had two desperate to run with me. At least Chloe had just as hard a team (Cory+Marcus) - and we were both doing the same legs.
Deteriorated as expected but some consistency at least later on (and not truly terrible):
2:49 (first lap on my own as starting - and went fast, 2nd with Ben)
2:55 (first lap was 2nd half of Henry's first effort, so had to work hard to keep with him)
Later efforts I was leaving Henry behind on 1st lap, but struggling to hold on to Ben on 2nd.
Followed with 5x 200s. Unlike most of the others who did it, I'm not a sprinter. 39.7, 39.0, 38.4, 38.7, 38.8 - I'll take that with current ailments.
Generally felt fine - even though didn't sound it at all.
