AM - 5.25 miles with Finn and Dan this morning before work.  

PM - lunchtime treadmill workout - 5 x 800 with an equal time rest ~3 mins - after a warm up and cool down.  3:00, 2:56, 2:52, 2:50, 2:48.  Felt very much within myself.  Could be the treadmill is not calibrated well - but I kept my HR just below threshold and something interesting of note - when I slowed for the jogs and then for the cool down, my HR went down very quickly as one would expect.  That was not always the case for me over the last few years, the HR would go down but would remain higher than expected when I was doing threshold or VO2 max workouts.  In short, things seem to be functioning well now.
