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

tried for a little tempo today, dialed back the pace a bit, hit 3 miles at 6:14, 6:05, 6:13 then stopped, it was pretty hot so i was tired, 18:32, 6:11 pace, which was about where iw as hoping, did a half mile easy then went hard for 1 more mile on its own, hit 5:55 on that one and was pretty tired afterwards, speedwork tuesday is still weighing on my sore legs, 7.2 total today in 6:41 avg pace all told - with tempo miles
