Original plan was 5×1500 / 5′ rest, but I needed to squeeze the workout into lunchtime, so I only had time 3 reps and I needed to cut the rest down and skip the cool down.
Despite that, it was pretty taxing. I was feeling some DOMS from my adventures with weights the day before. I used the first 1500 rep as a warm up and then focused on staying under a 1:50 split for the next three. I used the final rest as a cool down, pushing the pace a little bit more than normal, mainly to get the total meters above 8000 for the session.
I was working harder than I would have hoped for the achieved pace. Probably because of the lingering effects of the weight session, but also because I haven’t done much middle distance work for the past month.
