speedwork on the track tonight, 6x800 at 2:44, 2:42, 2:42, 2:43, 2:41, 2:42 with jogged 400 between each (between 2 and 3 minutes or nearly equal recovery) followed at the end with two 400s with about 1:40 rest between at 78 and 77 seconds, pretty even halfs throughout today, I was really happy with it, most of my 200s were between 39-41 seconds so kept it right on and steady, overall 7.5 with the cooldown and warmup and in-between jogs
