Tuesday is my Track day.
I usually pick a speed walk of some sort for today .. but when I got to the track it was pretty windy and I was feeling pretty flat. So instead of the 5km or 6km fartlek I had planned.... I swapped to a pacing 5km.
I have two months until Pan Pacific Masters. I am really hoping to better my times from last year. I need to get my body working so that I can try to get some speed coming through. I am just finding it frustrating that I take two steps forward and have a GREAT week...then wake up 3 steps back and locked up again. Patience is not my best virtue so its something I need to learn. I am trying hard to stretch most days and that is helping.
My 5km was good. Nothing hurt (which is fantastic) hip just felt weak...but that will change as I strengthen it. I was feeling a bit flat today and thought if I can maintain 6 min kms I will be happy. I managed to do just that and it wasnt tooo much of a struggle.
total time was 29:53
Tomorrow I will do a 5 or 6km along the walkway and then Thursday it will be an 8km.
I have two races this weekend. Sat and Sun 5000m each day on the track. Will be interesting to see how I go back to back.
