After the half-marathon, that is it for speed.

I vow, to never desire to beat another PR or go fast ever again.

Today's 6x800s @ 3:31 was accomplished (3:19, 3:23, 3:32, 3:20, 3:33, 3:24), but I now look and feel like death.

I am not meant to run any faster than 6:00 / km.

For fun last week, I timed myself full-out on the track for 400meters: 1:25. I was about ready to bust a lung. I remember in high-school, the storied 4x400m track teams were aiming for sub-fifty 400s ... woah.
