Speed work Thursday!

Ran 3 miles in 27 min 33 sec @ 9:11 min/ pace, weather was sunny, with a hot breeze. humid, but not sauna humid., temperature around 93 degrees, The schedule said 1 mile warm up, then 2x1 mile splits at 8:25. 1. 10:46 2. 08:06 3. 08:40 (average for the two miles, 8:23.5) Booyah!
Ok, so the first mile was fast, and that was a mistake. In fact, the first quarter was REALLY fast, at 1:40. After I saw that time, I decided to shoot for the 8:00 mile. I missed it by 6 seconds... grr. And then I totally bonked on the last half mile. That's just the way it goes sometimes.
Tomorrow's schedule has 5 miles at an easy (10:30) pace. I'm gonna gobble them up, while taking it easy.
