Thursday Workout - more breakthroughs

Another workout I made all the splits on for the first time. I've been close to making the final 400 on 5:00 before with a drag suit but never quite made it. I made the 400 on 5:20 with 10 seconds rest so I knew I had a chance. The trick for me is making it to 300 yards. Somewhere around 200 to 250 yards, it starts hurting bad and I start doubting myself. Once I get to 300, I know I can gut out the remaining 100. Made it today despite the heat.

Dropped the drag suit for the 500 timed. Dave paced me out at a 2:20 for the first 200. He dropped back for the remaining 300 while I kept pushing as hard as I could. Started hurting around 350 yards. Held it together for a 6:02. My best from Feb is 5:54. Have a feeling that time is going down next year.
