Tonight is speed night at the track. I was thinking of a 5km fartlek but when I got there Robyn had set all the seniors to do 10 x 500m and I figured.....what the hell...its still 5km. I was not feeling that "fast" tonight. Was great to see Paul there tonight so I knew he would help pull me along.
For the first 4 - I lead out but then I said to Paul he can lead out as I felt I was holding him up. He did take off for the next couple but soon evened back to closer to my times. I knew I was getting tired cause a couple of times I totally stuffed up my watch pressing stop not lap.... but I know what each 500 was so its easy enough to work it out. Seems I avg about 2:40 per 500m and I am good with that. We did 5min blocks so after a 500m we rested for 2:20 and then would go again. My legs didnt end up too dead, I just seemed to be a bit tired today. Still very happy to avg these for them all. Pretty consistent I think.
My heart rate was rather steady today too. So I am slowly getting fitter.
