you know hot pan, more i think about it, if those were on the road, with 90s rec's, there's actually no reason on a "perfect" coruse, or one at least reasonably flat, with negligible wind, that you can't go close to 33min. might have to be pretty happy with 33:30, as that would still be a good performance, but honestly i think that you should be in the ballpark, especially if you didn't have to go to the well on that w/o. the only thing that concerns me is the tendency was to fade off towards the end of the w/o, something you obviously want to rectify in the next w/o. best of luck and repost on this thread to let us know how it went ok?
I agree that I would need perfect conditions/great race to get to 33 flat. I think 33:30 is a better goal. As for that workout I felt I could have done the last 2 faster, but I would have been "going to the well" a bit as you put it. I think I could have done the last 2 in 3:10ish if I pushed hard, but I would have been bent over and sucking wind. I dont know maybe thats the way Im supposed to be running these...im pretty inexperienced in doing vo2 max type stuff.
Anyways, thanks and ill post my time after the race
