3k at 5k pace
2k at 3k pace
1k all out.
I wasn't sure what my 5k pace was so I decided to just wing it and hope I could go down from there.
Heres how it went.
15 minute job to track on 16th,
Scrape foot in dirt and create a start finish line.
Reset watch and start.
3km completed in 11:30 (3:51/3:51/3:48). Felt good, first few 100 meters hurt, I haven't run hard in a while, but was manageable once I got my breathing smooth.
2km completed in 7:24 (3:38/3:46), realized I was going to fast after the first lap and slowed it down, goal was 3:45 so slowed down a little too much on second km.
1km completed in 3:26, couldn't keep this pace for much more than 1.5km.
Was nice to do a track workout, lately I've just been doing long runs, I felt I really need to work on speed and haven't had the courage to go out and do a track workout on my own so I'm quite pleased with that.
Tonight, open water swim. Weather looks nice so I think I will try and do 2 laps tonight without a wetsuit.
Lilia arrived this morning, so blog updates may be a little slow soon.
