IF = 16 hours
warmup 5:23 - 0.76miles - 7:05min/mile
0.36 mile repeats - ~560m's w/2:00 rest between
2:40 - 7:30 min/mile
2:24 - 6:42 min/mile
2:25 - 6:47 min/mile
2:26 - 6:47 min/mile
5:00 cooldown walk

-From Mwod#49 - I Tried to keep my trunk from over extending while I ran, the last time I did 400 repeats 2:00 rest was barely enough and that was at a 7:30min/mile pace. I'm really curious to see if that will make a difference when I go for a bit longer duration wise. the first 560m was right after the warmup so in total I did 1.12 miles in 8:03 which is a 7:12min/mile pace.
Key points for running form that seemed to make a difference today
#1 - shoulders retracted but relaxed
#2 - don't overextend torso, keep ribcage locked down
#3 - keep my footsteps light and quick.
