2 x 5 km

I felt like a runner this morning and decided on 2 runs today.

Easy run into work, 10km’s (4.23’s). Not much fun with a huge back pack. Always feels heavier in the morning than in the evening for some reason.

After work i hit the dog park for some faster stuff. The plan was 2 x 5km off 30 seconds recovery. 

The pace for the first effort was tp be at marathon pace so should feel pretty comfortable. The second effort would be 10-15 seconds faster.

The result – 18.16 for the first effort (3.39’s) and 17.39 for the second effort (3.32’s).

The first effort was too fast but felt really easy. It should have been more in the 3.45’s range. 2nd effort was spot on. Had me working towards the end. 

I only put the 30 seconds recovery in as that was the lowest interval the garmin would set to (i think..). 

All good
