Tonight we did a Parloff Relay: 25 minutes with Jenny and me each doing 2 x 200 m. laps (400 m. total) before handing the baton to the other. Here are our splits:
Looking back to last summer, my times are comparable, although I was able to ramp up to a 1:20 final dash, whereas 1:32 was all I had in the tank this time. But my average pace was 1:30.62 back in July, whereas my average pace tonight was 1:32.62 -- so just 2 seconds per 400 m. difference overall.
I felt strong. I felt like I could actually _push_ with my right leg, for the first time in a long time. Still I'm not 100% -- but I'm feeling close. And if comparing the numbers to last July are any indication, I'm at (90.62/92.62) 97.8%!
