3 x 5 minute intervals, total mileage 8 miles

My interval workout was executed well this morning. I did a 15 minute warm up followed by 3 sets of 5min at vV02max and 5 minutes rest, then a 15 minute cool down.
The weather was near perfect.
Total time running was 60 minutes exactly.
Total mileage was 8 miles.
Total time at V02max was 9 minutes.

My first 5 minute interval I ran .73 miles but it ended on a hill for the last minute.
My second 5 min interval I ran .88 miles.
My third 5 min interval I ran .83 miles.

Pace was around 5:40-6:00 during each interval.
Equal rest time (5 minutes) at about 8:30-9:00 pace between intervals.

It was a tough work out, and I may repeat it in 3 weeks.
Next week is 5 x 4 minutes at vV02max.
