Overall the workout was just what I needed to snap out of Sunday. Every 400 was between 67 and 70 depending on the wind and the direction we were running. I felt like a brand new million dollar bill with the exception of some soft tissue pain in my left calf. What was most surprising was how quickly the workout passed. Looking back a few hours later I was very proud of our ability to hold back. Without question Saturdays planned 16 mile tempo is already bouncing around in the dark recesses of our subconscious.
In a rare occurrence the whole crew finished their workouts in unison and we were changed off on a four mile cool down within a few minutes. Following some stretching and a quick shower we were off to Armadillo's for burritos and refreshing beverages. I bounced out a little earlier than usual and headed home for the night.
