Taper week (or sharpening phase), this will be the last hard workout before the race. There was one more scheduled but that was based on the race being on Monday instead of Saturday.
After two mile warm up, 3x1200m at half marathon goal pace, or about 7:00 pace. Went pretty well, with average paces of 7:00, 6:55, and 6:53.
Next up 4x400m @ 5k pace, about 6:30, - the first one felt hard but not really, it felt like I was going fast enough but the pace said otherwise but still managed to get close to 6:30, next three were better especially the last one. Paces for these were: 6:34, 6:10, 6:26, and 5:58
Finally wrapped things up with two miles easy.
Weather was nice and cool, low 50's, felt perfect.
