Last hard workout before the Monumental Marathon. Did 3x2 mles down the canyon with one mile recovery. Ran in the afternoon, so there was headwind. The first was in 5:01, 5:04, the second 4:55, 5:03, and the third 4:58, 4:48. In the first two intervals I started out faster, and then slowed down. My Dad encouraged me to do the reverse in the third interval, and it paid off. Thanks Dad!
