The plan today was intervals. I look forward to interval sessions, they make you feel awesome afterwards!
Relatively tired legs as I swapped Tuesday’s 20km tempo type session for yesterday as I was off drinking too much at Melbourne Cup. Tuesday a short sharp session instead.
8 x 1km off 90 seconds recovery was the idea. I had in mind to hit 3.15’s to 3.20’s. Legs quite heavy so would be a challenge. Damn dogs all over the park too as usual which turns it into a bit of an obstacle course. Nonetheless, reps were:
Really pushed the last rep. I was averaging 3..05’s until halfway then I faded badly. Was doubled over at the finish.
Rep 3 came out of nowhere and the the reps after that were pretty consistent.
Great North Walk 100’s this weekend. Its shaping up to be a humid one. I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since I ran that as my first 100 miler. Brendan Davies has to be odds on. The guy is on fire and is having an amazing year. He has 2 x C2K winner Ewan pacing him for the last 70km’s which should make for a quick time.
Meanwhile i’ll be plodding along on more pavement racking up over 100km’s this weekend to hopefully bank another big week.
