-I initially started out with no clear pace in mind, just was going to take it kinda easy, but then the second set got a lot slower so I decided to do the remaining workouts descending trying to hit the last set with a 2:00/100 yard pace.

Went to an old favorite place in Peninsula - the river trail. Don't get down there much anymore since that was my old way to and from work. Beautiful day. The run started sluggish, but it ended up ok.

Indoor. I was soooo about to bag this workout. I was guilty of the Haloween candy I consumed today plus the wife was napping...so a late trainer ride it is.

* Did all of these on 4/3 breathing very easily. Usually 1/4 into the workout I switch back to 3/3 breathing as 4/3 gets too hard...today it felt great and effortless the whole time. It kinda seems that my ability to do a whole workout on 4/3 breathing is an indication of how 'tired' I am going into the workout.
