Running 17:06  4.83 km (3:33 / km)
A good session I’ve been keen to do for a while, combining speedwork but also tough as there is no recovery. And now getting into some speedwork seemed like a good time.
8 x 400m hard [200m float].
As it’s supposed to be 4.8k, and somewhat equivalent to your 5k shape, but you can’t really end on a 200m float, so started with a 200m float.
Had niallmac for company which was nice, and helped.
Seemed to get moving alright, but after 3 or 4 I wasn’t recovering on the floats and started struggling to get the legs moving quicker. On the last 3 or so Niall was moving ahead on the 400s, and I’d catch up to regroup on the 200s.
Would have liked the times to be quicker on the 400s, but I get that the nature of the session made it tough, that’s the point.
Good session to get done, would have been good to get on the track but there was a kids session booked.
Finished the session in 16:57, not too worried about that, had it not been in Ringsend Park could have been a bit quicker, and just getting into the speedwork.
Looking forward to tracking the speedwork and it’s impact.
400s: 74, 76, 79, 80, 81, 80, 81, 75.
