Track progression maintained
I opted for a similar volume in terms of effort as last week (5 x 1K) but this week went for 8 x 600 in an attempt to step up the overall pace........ if at all possible. 200 jog recovery as usual. (1.30)
Times reflected the customary acceleration................
2:46.8 2:45.7 2:44.9 2:43.7 2:40.8 2:38.6 2:38.9 2:35.3
Shame it takes several reps before my M60 legs come to life and I actually start to feel like a runner rather than an aged shuffler.
Averaging out at 2:42 pace that translates to 7:15 approx. mileing, only approx. 45 10K pace, but nevertheless again a bit of a boost to confidence. I'll be back to over 9 for a recovery 4 tomorrow!
Question is........ will we be forced to cope with an overnight snowfall on Saturday ? Hopefully gone by the time I go out. Need a lie in after today's efforts.
