I had a track session today but I felt that I would be ok. I am so used to these that I can often phase them out for a short time if I concentrate on something else. So doing a speed session will do that.
I started out with the other walkers as they too were doing their version of a 3km fartlek. I got caught up for the first 200m and then I was able to stretch out and get going. I felt GREAT. My breathing was not too intense and my pace was as fast as I felt I could go. It was cooler tonight and that made a huge difference. I slowed for my recovery lap and I did try and hope to keep a steady pace and hit 3.00 for the 500m....I got close. Then I was able to easily amp up for the fast 500m
On the last fast 500m Robyn called out to push with my back feet. I thought I had been but after she told me that I was landing, rolling and then almost stopping ..... so I tried hard to push and instantly picked up the pace to finish with my fastest 500m.
1 km - 2.47 + 2.44
2 km - 3.04 + 2.47
3 km - 3.06 + 2.40
Total time 17:10
