What would have been

5mi. Ordinarily, today would have been an easy effort of six 800m repeats at marathon pace. This year, we will not have a Palm Beach Marathon, it will hopefully pick back up next December. Money, sponsors, etc. have melted the current situation down to a 5k race Friday night.

Today we ran a familiar workout. The still, calm air and clouds hovering above made it a very warm morning for this run. My  first 800m was 3:13 slow, my first 400m was 1:32. I improved as I chased Seth and Atilla to a 2:56 800m and a 1:21 400m.
