Running 30:00  2.5 km (12:00 / km)
shoes: Brooks Cascadia 12
So I looked at this one today and figured...this won't be that bad at all. 100m intervals? People can run 100m in 10 seconds. How bad can it be?
SIR - 10x100m, 90 seconds rest (all out sprint)
Going in I figured, since I remember I could run a 14.1 in high school, and I'm probably slower now even though I run more...I can definitely get these done in 15.5 maybe, or definitely under 16 seconds.
So I put the stopwatch on the second one just to see..... 19.3 seconds.
I guess this is just one of those times that you remember that you're a middle aged dude with 2 kids running intervals in the suburbs...not exactly an athlete.
To make it even more depressing, 19.3 means that my all out sprint is a 3:13mpkm pace. That's a full 20 seconds slower than the 2hr marathon WR that was just set. I can't even run that speed for 100m. That's nuts. Back to eating nacho chips and watching football.
