This was the first time I had done the workout and didn't really know what to expect from my legs or what the fatigue level would feel like. Well now I know. I managed to complete the workout and was quite pleased. HERE is an article to explain the workout. This is considered a "marathon predictor" workout. IF one can complete the intervals relatively consistent than the average time would be close to your marathon finishing time in hours/minutes.
My energy was good and legs felt pretty fresh. The breakdown looked like this:
3 mile warm up
10 X 800 meters with equal TIME of repeat for recovery.
