Mile Repeat Tuneup

2.5 mile w/u + strides
Target: 5-6 x1 mile @5:40 or faster w/3 mins. rest
Actual: 5:38, 5:39, 5:38, 5:36, 5:31
1.5 mile c/d
Total: 15k

Another early, chilly morning with Jordan on the roads. The objective today was to get in some quicker--but not ridiculous--mile repeats; enough to tax the legs but not so much as to leave them exhausted for Saturday's race. I accomplished this well enough and felt pretty good. I could've probably recovered enough after #5 to bang out one more rep in the 5:35-5:40 range, but instead I opted to leave a little in the tank for Saturday. Hope it pays off!
