Disappointingly the 6Ft Track Marathon has been cancelled this weekend due to weather so my taper has been in vain. On hearing the news I decided to head out and hit some interval work.
The plan was 10 x 1km at 10sec faster than marathon pace with a 200 meter recovery. So I was targeting 3.40’s which I’d hope would be reasonably comfortable.
The reps were:
The 200 meter recoveries averaged about 52 seconds each (4.21 pace).
I thought the 9th rep was my last one which is why I ran it quicker. Recovered easy enough.
This session felt very comfortable. Pleased with the quality I’m putting in at the moment. To think just over a year ago I was barely hitting 4 minute km’s without a struggle. The progression is really motivating.
All up 14.03km including warmup and cooldown in 53.96 (3.47’s)
