>General Running>Intervals faster than PR?!?
When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Did I miss something? I'm not sure I understand.
You ran 800 meters as part of a threshold run and are suprised that you ran at a faster pace than a 5000 meter run?
Do I have this right?
It looks like the recoveries were not real recoveries;

The results from this morning aren't in line with what I typically run during intervals - my recovery laps are usually much slower. I think this is most likely to be a memory error (I don't have a watch that keeps track of it for me), especially since nobody else seems to have had that kind of experience. I know that the speed intervals are correct, but I'm going to bet that I remembered the recovery times wrong. I've only been using RA for a month, and my old spreadsheet didn't care what my recovery times were. It seems a little more difficult to remember both numbers. Ah well, it would have been pretty sweet if they were correct. I guess if it happens again next week, I'll believe it, otherwise I'm just going to assume that I messed it up somehow - I really don't feel like I'm in condition for a sub-18:00 5k.
