COMMENTS: 1 mile warm up and 1.5 mile RTYP pace.
First Km was run at 4.48 (7.43 mile pace)
Second was 5.16 (8.28 pace)
last .4 was 2.16 (9.07 pace)
I slowed down quite a bit in the final .4. Certainly not negative splits.
Total of an 8.55 pace for the 1.5 miles. Not horrible, but I did that well on my 5 K tempo run Saturday. I would have expected to do better on the shorter run.
