Got up with Shane bright and early............yawn!!!
We headed down to the walkway and I said that I would probably do 5km and so would met him back at the start point. I headed off and at first felt a tad stiff from the 15km but soon warmed up. As I came up to the first 1km marker I did what females do best......and changed my mind!!!
I stopped my watch (1.39 km is a good enough warm up) and reset my watch. From this point I could easily do my 3km fartlek and still met back with Shane. I changed my auto lap to .500m and hit go.
1st km - I really didnt fire well.....My breathing was pretty heavy this time round but the legs were pushing through under me and I can feel my hips snapping back a lot quicker now. 2:30:6 + 2:44:6 = 5:15:2
2nd km - I was feeling pretty shattered and took it easy on the recovery - then tried to push up for the fast 500m but there was little in the legs for this one 2:58:3 +2:50:6 = 5:48:9
3rd km - I wanted to finish on the good note, I was not expecting to be too quick as its been a wee while since I have done any form of speed. My legs were pretty tired now 3:04:3 + 2:41:6 = 5:45:6
Total time was 16:52 with avg heart rate of 163
