    SHOUT OUT: Trip. This set was his idea today. He made them all (with room to spare!). Totally did this as my usual threshold set yesterday morning, so the redundancy was a little "meh". I decided since Trip was doing them on 1:10 to see how many I could hold at my goal mile pace (1:01-). Other than the 3rd one of the set of 3, it was pretty good. However I had no legs to speak of to help me on the back half because of my leg lift 30 minutes earlier!
