It went slightly better than last week.
I felt pretty good during the first set, felt like crap during the second set and almost called it quits then convinced myself I could survive 4 more laps, even though - once again - I was way off target pace.
Here are the stats as compared to last week.
(Target is 1:50/400 = 7:20/1600.)
So, I improved my overall interval time by 9 seconds and my average 1600 by a whopping 3 seconds. Better than nothing?? I'm starting to wonder if my target is too aggressive, but it can't hurt to keep trying (except maybe my morale).
Observation: Tonight I realized that I had to run in lane 2 in order for one complete lap to equal 400m (according to Gsrmin) - is the track playing tricks with me, or was Garmin just trying to make me work harder
The fact that my final 400 was so much faster than the 7 previous laps leads me to believe I had more in me than I thought and let myself slow down too much/too soon. I think I'll try again. (I must be a glutton for punishment!)
