The workout was supposed to be 3x or 4x mile repeats, but when the option was offered for a 2x 800m, 4x 400m, 2x 800m, I opted for that. The shorter, speedier stuff will be more helpful for my race on Saturday.
Unfortunately, I did a poor job of pacing myself through the workout. I had to take a break before the last 400, so I chose to cut the last two 800's down to one 800 and some strides. But in my 800 I absolutely hit a wall not quite 500m in. I stopped there because there was no point to continuing through at such a slow pace and dying while doing it. After a few recovery laps, I did 2 laps of strides on the straightaways.
800m - 3:01, 3:01
400m - 84, 86, 89, 85
800m attempt - 1:49 at speed
1. Although I'm not super duper slow, I can't sustain these paces for that long. I think it would have been better to go for 3:05 800's and 88 400's. Having a race under my belt will help give me a better idea of what times to shoot for in my intervals.
2. I need to make sure I'm getting the right amount of food. My eating schedule has been somewhat all over the place, and I definitely did not get enough sustenance today before the workout.
3. I need to keep an eye on my L hip. It's been hurting since Sunday's broomball game. Although I don't think it's anything serious, the workout definitely aggravated it, so it'd be smart to pay attention to it.
