Very impressive! Taking 20 seconds off your previous seasonal PR was no small feat...particularly with that slow-down. Don't know how you were able to pick up the pace so dramatically for the last 2.5 minutes after seeing 2:30 on the pace counter. Nicely done!!
Psychologically, I can force myself to do a lot in the last 500, but when I had 750 to go and was struggling to hold 2:00, it was a losing battle. When I got to 1500 I was just about at 6 minutes even, so that gave me some motivation. Thanks! I was pretty whipped after this.
Tough pace, impressive!!!
