I HAVE SOME REALLY GOOD NEWS PEOPLE WHO MIGHT BE INTERESTED!
today I went to the track again in Vilamoura for one final hit out in the sun. I ran a 300s session. I ran (4 x 300) x 2 (2 x 300) x 1 = 10 x 300m
I took 90 seconds between reps walking to the start again, and 7 mins between sets.
I have just looked on Strava at previous training of a similar sort (10 x 300m). I seem to remember the session I looked at (31/01/2017) I had done a 2km tempo then 10 x 300m off maybe 1 minute recovery or something like that.
I was running 52,53,54,55 in January / Feb last year - AND GUESS WHAT I MANAGED TODAY!
54, 54, 53, 55
54, 55, 54, 55
I am so happy! I know that I had longer recovery and split the reps BUT to even run sub 3 min/km for any length of time is a bloody good feat. It's only taken a year and and 8 months.
I'm also really happy with my km reps session on Monday - I held the pace for longer than I had expected. Same happened today and I'm so proud that I have managed to persevere despite how hard it has been.
Here's to things to come. And lots of it.
