Running race (road/xc) 20:20  4.9 km (4:09 / km)
Bellmanstafetten, MrOrange 1, Leg 5.
Well glad that's over with, I can put threshold running to bed again. Really not comfortable or that enjoyable either. I have felt a little more comfortable running at almost max gradually over the last couple of weeks but tonight was brutal. I may have to adjust my zones again - is it possible to run as much as 5km just over threshold? Probably not, more likely that I've based my zones on performances where I've been a little fatigued. 100% fresh tonight, fairly obviously.
Both teams did well, everybody was either towards the quicker side of their estimations or under them. One or two big surprises, the dark horses showed their true colours as expected. Fortunately I did manage to get the fastest time amongst our two teams but there were 3 low 21s to keep me on my toes.
