Now this is better!!!
Finally a work out that I am happy with. I got to the track on time today and got in a couple of laps warm up with the others. Then they broke away with Robyn to do their own work outs and I started on my 8km. I decided that I would do 500m bursts every 2km.
I felt strong and good from the start of this walk and picked a nice strong pace that I pretty much stuck to for the whole walk. The weird thing is .... I was really trying hard on the 500m where I wanted to pick up the pace and did ease back for the second part of the 500m. But the times show the same???? Weird.
I had to make a very quick pit stop at 4km. I had drunk a little too much water before leaving work and by 4km I knew I needed to make a quick pit stop.
I had a couple of tight niggles with my hamstring around the 6km mark but nothing that hurt too much. I enjoyed todays walk and breaking it up with the 500ms seemed to make it go faster...which is always a good thing.
total time for 8km was 48:43 a nice solid walk.
