Today was another track workout, 12 sets of 400m with 200m recovery at 5k pace. That’s ideally in the high 81 seconds range. It was a little wet today so there was no hugging the track ability on the run. My pace was 82 seconds for the first 9 sets and then 81, 80, 80 for the last three so close enough. As I look back to previous seasons I know I always struggle with 5k work, but I think I’m usually right under pace. So what this tell s me is I’m not in flat 2:45 marathon shape, time to tune my goal for the final race prep next Saturday and the marathon in Boston.
