Friday A. M Speed session 12km total
Friday’s speed session wasn’t in the same league as Tuesday’s. I wasn’t expecting it to be, and I didn’t want to tire my legs out too much. It’s amazing how different it felt in terms of exertion!
The ladder was run with 200m recoveries. When we finished the 200m rep we then had a longer recovery, before deciding to run a 1km effort back to our starting point.
I felt like I ran the session at what I call an easy-fast pace. This is the pace I can maintain without really thinking about it, or what I run when I’m tired but trying to run hard (like if I’ve gone out too hard in a race and I’m just trying to hold on for the last km). My easy-fast used to be 4:30, so it has improved!
Today is a rest day, then a 3km race tomorrow! I’m feeling confident, so hopefully I’ll have a good report on Monday.
