Easy Run 20:34 [2] 2.64 mi (7:47 / mi) +20m 7:37 / mi

Warm up run to 20 min threshold session start. Mostly downhill from home to town park.

Threshold run 20:02 [5] 3.61 mi (5:33 / mi) +28m 5:25 / mi

First 3 miles were done on a 350 metre Tarmac loop in the town park. It's quite flat and conditions were calm. Then moved out onto the road when some dog walkers and their out of control animals joined me! I was out of breath early on, about 3-4 mins in but it didn't get too much worse. I was able to speak a few words, such as 'thank you very much, how are you'. Legs felt and body felt good. When I finished I was tired, but again not busted, as I could have talked in short sentences. Mile times were 5.37 - 5.29 - 5.26 then 3.29 for the last 1k. Through 5k in roughly 16:50. I reckon I could have held this pace until 5 miles or so, maybe a bit longer with company or something to focus on. This went better than I thought.
7 PM

Easy Run warm up/down 24:31 [2] 2.91 mi (8:26 / mi) +111m 7:32 / mi

Jog home after session, mostly uphill, including some steep ones. Felt fine after working hard.

Easy Run 1:01:13 [3] 7.89 mi (7:46 / mi) +178m 7:15 / mi

Easy road run with speed variations. After 24 mins I started 6x 30 secs, with 2-3 mins easy running between each. Undulating route. I felt good, easy pace felt relaxed and faster felt natural/smooth. The threshold run at the weekend will be interesting, as I'm eager to see how long I can hold the pace for!

Moderate Run 1:02:03 [4] 8.26 mi (7:31 / mi) +284m 6:47 / mi

This run felt fantastic. Running felt smooth and I was happy working on the harder side of moderate. Route mainly on trail, felt strong and definitely feeling fitter.

8 PM

Easy Run 50:57 [2] 6.02 mi (8:28 / mi) +125m 7:57 / mi

Working one day ahead of schedule this week, as I'll miss a day later in the week due to child care. Barely looked at my watch during this one, tried to go by feel. Did feel tired around half way, but perked up as I got near the end.

5 PM

Easy Run (w/ 60sec Hill reps) 58:35 [4] 7.07 mi (8:17 / mi) +207m 7:36 / mi

Jog mainly downhill to town centre, to a hill (road) of about 10% gradient and long enough for 60 secs. Felt relaxed during warm up, did the first two reps on a hill that was maybe too steep, decided to change to the one beside it and did four. It felt good. Ran at a good pace but stayed relaxed and I was out of breath at the end of each. Last 10-15 secs were particularly tough. Jogged back up home.
