semi-long run in the morning, with a 6-mile fartlek in the middle. A good way to start the day, longest I've ran in a minute

I would define my current fitness as "frequent half-marathon participant"

What does "frequent half-marathon participant" mean?

Well, I ran a 2:22.63 in my 800m race on Saturday. I barely made it into the semifinals for this coming weekend. Of the 16 spots, I was 14th. I didn't run my best race. I had too much left at the end. I still need to get a 2:20 to qualify for the prefecture championships, but I have confidence now that I can do it. I am in much better condition than I thought.

That's great to hear Eva. Maybe try to get a 600 or 2 at that pace in to really lock it into your legs, if you're able to in a workout, bur it seems like your coach knows what they're doing if you ran 2:22 in a bad race!
