I went tonight with the idea of seeing how I felt and then deciding how hard to push it. On the first 5min 30sec run I was taking it fairly easy when John McL went past so I thought I might as well stay with him. I then decided I was feeling good so pushed hard throughout the session.
There were a group of 4-5 younger runners including 13yr old Callum who went past me each time and I tried to hang on to them as long as possible.
Here are my splits
5min 30sec: 0.89miles (6.10 pace)
5min: 0.81 (6.11)
4min 30sec: 0.74 (6.07)
4min: 0.67 (6.00)
3min 30sec: 0.59 (5.58)
3min: 0.52 (5.49)
2min 30sec: 0.44 (5.43)
2min: 0.36 (5.32)
Add those distances up and you get 5.02miles which is always the aim on a Monday night. Considering it is just over a week since I ran the Saintelyon I was pleased with that.
I’m just running as I feel like this week as next week is the start of the club races. I really enjoy the short sharp ones as they are so different to the long slow ones!
