7k tempo with 5k @5:00, 2k @4:40.
Managed to feel ok after stretching at 7k.
Legs still had some tiredness from 20k on Saturday, so 5:00/k felt fast enough.

Worked hard in the heat. Felt real good on the 3rd and 4th. Had several guys to run behind, which helps a lot. 800s were hard but kicked well on the last one.
