This is not a test. Yes it is true. After a crappy 10k I run a fast 1k rep. Go figure.
Egged on by Easy Tiger yesterday who said I should be able to run faster, I had a go.
The North East Se Breeze blowing tonight dictated how I decided to run the reps.
Basically no warmup and start from the 0 marker on the bay run and ran down to the 5k mark.
I then jogged back to the 4k mark and ran back to the 3k. Then did a 3k cool down back to the car.
The run goes into the wind during the 3-4k leg hence the slow time.
Reps were 3:29, 3:32, 3:31, 3:42, 3:35, 3:35. All done with a 2 minute walk recovery.
The 3:42 rep was into the wind for about 800metres. The first three reps were equal to or faster than the 3:32 PB from last week.
Now just have to keep some of this pace for the Half Marathon next week.
