Running intervals 16:50  5.0 km (3:22 / km)
5 x 1000 track intervals. This was the first workout among my last few during which I actually felt good and like I wanted to be doing what I was doing. I was shooting for sub-3:20 on the last go, and ripped off a 3:12(!) with a 73(!) first lap and a 2:32(!) 800, which is ~5:09/mile pace. It is my secret ambition to someday run a sub-5:00 mile.
Since I ran five kilometers, we can easily calculate my 5k time as 16:50 by simply adding all the k's together, because that's how that works!
The fightin' purple Kangaroos, pride and joy of Lake Washington High School, were practicing as I was running. Ah, high school football: Where else can you watch a hundred 150-lb. dudes careening wildly around while self-important guys with beer bellies named "Chad" and "Coach Carter" throw random items across the field and yell things like "POISON, POISON!" and "Awww, pattycake!" at everyone, and at no one in particular?
I was also called a "jogger" by one of the young gentlemen, as in "Watch out for the JOGGER!" So yeah, pretty offended by that. To be fair, I was warming down at the time.
