Tuesday's run was meant to be a 16k run at medium pace. That's the only medium paced run of the training cycle. I am not sure what medium pace should be. Turns out I probably never will because by the time I actually got home, about 2 hours late from when I wanted to be, I was so frustrated that I made it a tempo run. And a fast tempo run too! In 1h16, it gives me a pace of 4:48m/km. Phew!
Yesterday's 13km was intervals and I usually dread intervals but there were still a bit of frustration to fuel my run.
I think I may even have forgotten to slow down for one of the rest intervals ;)
I decided on a 1km warmup with alternating between fast and rest kms. Interval time were;
- (5:40), 4:20, (5:10)
- 4:20, (4:57)
- 4:32, (5:06)
- 4:24, (4:58)
- 4:32, (5:07)
- 4:30, (5:15)
In the mix this week was the always soothing Deedrah and the pounding and driving Psychedelic compilation from 3D Records.
PS: I think I convinced Alex to move back downtown. We are seeing some properties tonight.
