Had an amazing workout, and it was REALLY exciting to put together a 77 on my first 400!! Now I need to find a way to keep the speed up on subsequent 400s – my speed deteriorated a bit. Though an 80 and then an 81 are both respectable, I really need to be able to hold a low-70 400 for a full set of 8 (with some rest), or more, to be able to expect to put together a sub-5 mile. It’s only the second week, so I don’t mind building, and I really excited by the 77 – it’s a strong showing!
