Great group workout this afternoon at the Northside track in Columbus:

4 runners in attendance: Nathan, Micheal, Matt, and I running, and Jeff, the local race organizer and friend, brought out his big finish line clock and set it up on a table at the lap mark and timed us - thanks, Jeff! :)

WU - jogging and some pickups

1 mi. time trial - 5:15 (70/74/82/88) -- Too fast for first half and I paid the price in the second half - 5:00 was the goal - 75 splits for the first 2 x 400m would've got me there I think.  Horrible pain in lungs after finishing - from the shock of the cold air I guess?

jogging to recover from the mile and then jogged the 800m time trial that was planned - was a little disappointed with missing that... 800m - 2:51, some jogging at recovery pace after that (it that long for my lungs to quit burning! :( ) 

400m time trial - 61.1 - slower start, but really got it going on the last 200m - hit top speed for the first time in a while

slow jogging - full recovery,

4x800m w/ 0.25 mi. rec. (2:57, 2:45, 2:45, 2:45) 

slow jogging CD   ---  9.33 mi. total - 75:30 total time

Saucony Kinvara 2 - Black/Gold Miles: 9.33
Weight: 0.00

Nice going. I did an 800 all-out awhile back and I know that terrible burning feeling well. Getting closer to your high school self though! Nice job.
