3x1k Reps

Did these reps on the track at Kensington. Not many left when I started doing my session.
Really windy with the Southerly blowing, and the stand doesn't block too much when the wind comes from the South East which it was tonight.

Did a 2k warmup and then half a dozen strides before starting.

Reps were 3:21, 3:25, 3:26. All done with a 4 min walk recovery between each rep. Not very fast but the wind was really knocking me around.

Did a 2k cool down after finishing.

Hello Paulie. I couldn't help but notice this on CR -

"I'll be doing the 50k again. Hoping to run close to the 3:40 mark this time for the 50k. Which should equate to a sub 3hr Marathon beforehand."

Dear, dear, dear. Why do you put such pressure on yourself?

I hope you fare a little better with this than you have with some of your past predictions.

I suppose it's all good entertainment - I know it makes me laugh.

Love, Blue Dog's Mum. XXX

Blue Dog's Mum has a cruel sense of humour.

I hope it's not windy Saturday night. 17:55 is doable if you run even splits. First km in 3:32-3 would be good. Might be helpful to have lap splits written on your hand (or have someone call them out) - if you drop 2 seconds in a lap you can try to adjust before it's too late.
