2K at CV at TSD

Did you get all that??

Yesterday was the 2K at Critical Velocity pace (15K pace) at the Texas School for the Deaf. It was actually a great workout! Long and hard (stop giggling...), but good!

I did 5 sets of 2000 meters with 200 meter rests. My 15k pace is 7:44. And since none of my printouts have my 400meter time for my 15k pace, I did the following math which I hope was correct.

So, if 7:44 is one mile, one fourth of that is 400m, right? Well, 7:44 is 16 short of 8. And one fourth of 8 is 2, then hack off the 16 seconds divided by 4 for each lap to get at 400m time of 1:56. Does that seem right?? If not, oh well, because that's what I ended up going for! (If that's not how to do that..someone please enlighten me!)

Here are my paces:
1st 2K:
lap 1 -- 1:50
lap 2 -- 2:00 (find it, find it, dammit)
lap 3 -- 1:51
lap 4 -- 1:52
lap 5 -- 1:55 (yea!)

2nd 2k:
1 -- 1:54
2 -- 1:55
3 -- 1:55
4 -- 1:52
5 -- 1:52

3rd 2k:
1 -- 1:54
2 -- 1:54
3 -- 1:54 (I'm in the ZONE!)
4 -- 1:54
5 -- 1:54

4th 2k:
1 -- 1:53
2 -- 1:53
3 -- 1:55
4 -- 1:52
5 -- 1:52

Was feeling pretty good, so I decided to see if I could do the last one a little bit faster.

5th 2k:
1 -- 1:49
2 -- 1:49
3 -- 1:52 (was daydreaming staring at the Frost tower lit up at nite...very pretty...oh wait, run, run!)
4 -- 1:49
5 -- 1:48

WOO HOO!
