I have not done this mix before and was looking forward to giving it a go. I picked the track as I like to know 100% that I am doing the right distance.
I started out for my first 2km - I was feeling ok. Body was stiff and a little sore from the 15km the day before. I could sure feel my glutes working today. I was really pleased with my time for the 2km and felt the effort was not too hard but I was not mucking around either. Now the trick was, could I repeat it for the next two lots. I was starting to get tired on the my last lot of 2kms but it was nice to know I was swapping onto 1km reps now.
I had 2mins rest between each set and it felt more than enough. I was still struggling to get my legs to fire properly. I dont feel I have any actual speed yet. I had thought my 1 km reps would be much faster than in my 2km ones....but I was tired by now and my fast twitch were not twitching. Instead they were fairly consistent and I know that I was putting in a good effort with each one. It will be nice when I can do a whole 10km at this pace.
Garmin site is down for repair so there is no link for the data at this stage.
