All designed to keep our customers warm, dry and safely visible in the coming months.
I was allowed a pass out, however, to run from the shop the mile down to Seedhill track for this week's session. I made the warm up up to 3 with the usual circuit of the park and strides and started into a 4 x miles session. As usual conditions blustery and distinctly cool.
I've set this fundamental session for athletes and myself countless times in the past and 10K pace
should be attainable and reasonably expected. Less than 2 weeks ago I managed a road 10K at 6.54 per mile pace....42.50. But today for whatever reason (running solo, blustery conditions, etc etc.)
I could only manage 7.35 7.36 7.28 7.24.
Quite disappointing BUT still , a much faster pace than any other mile run this week. Showing that if you want to do speed work......find your favourite running track and use it !
Or in the case of Seedhill (at weekends).....lose it.
