PM - 2-mile warmup; 3 x 2-mile T on track w/ 400m (~2:00) recoveries; Goal: 5:20 pace (10:40 2-mile) - Conor Lyons (former HW runner headed to Northeastern this fall) joined me for part of this; 10:39 (5:21/5:18), 10:33 (5:17/5:16), 10:34 (5:17/5:17); 2-mile cooldown back to Patton Park. I was happy to be able to stay under 5:20's - the first one felt so easy, I really thought I might be able to run 5:12's or at least 5:15's on the last one, but I was starting to tire a bit by then.
