6k at 5k pace
not really, but sort of. Today's workout was 10 miles including 3k-2k-1k with 3min rest in between items. I ran the 3k 18s faster than goal, then had my comeuppance during the 2k (13s slower) and 1k (6s slower). Still, I managed to run the 3k + 2k 2s off my 5k PR. Of course, I don't get to rest 3 minutes in real 5k races.
After feeling ragged the past couple of days I didn't think I'd ever run fast again, so it was good to get this done.

Isn't it crazy how that happens? Some days 8 minute pace seems brutal, but then the next day we can turn around and churn out 6:30s. I don't get it!
