Pacing Get it Right

The first five weeks (conditioning) of the 5K program are complete. The next stage is competition, this involves sharpening and a reduction in mileage. I'm not to keen on bringing my mileage down as its only averaging 54 miles a week. The lessons learned from the USATF race was pacing and endurance. Todays workout showed both are in awry.
Scheduled 8 x 600 meters with a two minute rest.
I figured to run these between 1:53 to 1:57
ACTUALS:
w\u - 15:31
#rep-time-rest time
1-1:00-1:29 oops only ran 300 meters!
2-2:03-2:00
3-1:57-2:00
4-2:00-2:00
5-1:57-2:00
6-2:00-2:02
7-1:59-2:02
8-1:59-1:27 (14:55 total time, 5:19 average)
c\d - 17:08

a little on the slower side, but that's okay!

    Those repeats look really consistent (not to mention, fast). Good luck with your sharpening and the upcoming races!
