Ah, my final full interval workout before the taper. Feels good to be done. More importantly, it went very well. My previous best for this workout was an average of 2:55 for each split. Today? 2:53. Nice, I'll gladly take it.
Was glad to get in this workout despite another longer than normal day at work. I'm on an interview committee at work and we're filling a position in our district. But given this was a key workout, I was pretty mentally pumped to get out there once the work day was done.
Tomorrow is a recovery day and work returns to normal. Both will be quite welcome!
