...your time for the 800 was actually 6 seconds faster than mine. I agree, we're pretty close on these intervals. I plan on keeping up the track work for a while, with the goal of running some 10ks before summer.

And I thought I was hopelessly behind your time:)....and you did do that workout just a couple of days before a championship! I'm doing some sr. games and road miles and the like. So it will be good to emulate your workouts once in a while and stretch the envelope. From what I've seen on your log you run a fine 10k.

I wasn't too worried about the O meet, and as it turns out I had plenty of speed to spare, but not enough brains. Are you going to the senior games in Albuquerque? I qualified in the 10k, but I feel like I'd need at least 2 weeks at altitude to be able to run there.

Everybody is different in how fast they acclimatize, but I am very sensitive to it. So the short answer is probably not. I went there once for USATF masters indoors 1500 and even though I traveled out west for a couple of weeks prior, it was a lot of up and down...and racetime I felt like the altitude just killed me, or maybe just tired from travelling. And maybe I just wasn't as good as I thought, I was a distant 2nd from last. If I were going to do it again, I'd hole up in Santa Fe @7000' and run and hike up onto the beautiful ridge overlooking town everyday, then come down to A. a couple of days prior.
