This workout consists of 5 minutes fast, 5 minutes slow, 4 minutes fast and 4 minutes slow, and so on and so forth. The objective was to hit 5:05 pace for the first repetition and then get faster on each of the following repetitions. I didn’t quite manage to do that but at least I didn’t blow up and was able to maintain pace. The next phase will be to get those next few reps faster and faster. I give myself a B- on the workout.

You may get a B for not doing it exactly the way you'd hoped to, but you definitely get an A for toughness shown. Good workout.
