This is my test the body week.
I handled the track well and tonight I have 5km. Coach wants me to push a little this week as he wants to see how I feel and how I recover.
Its been raining all day but its still warm. It was 25 degs when I started so I didn't mind getting a bit wet. I felt good straight away. I had my music going and was just getting into to listening to that and was not thinking about pacing. I was not breathing hard and felt good so I just kept going at the same effort. I was surprised to see at 3km I had just touched 18 mins.... wow thats a steady pace and I felt really good.
I headed back and did have to push a little to keep the effort up as the rain had gotten heavier and the walkway was getting flooded and slippery.
As my watch chirped to say 5km I hit stop and looked at my time. I was so rapt to see that I had just done a sub 30 min for 5km. YAY!!!!!!
29.55 for 5km.
