Time to start waking up those fast twitch muscles!!! they have been in a deep sleep and well hidden from me for quite some time. I have just started doing Aerial Yoga and hope that by becoming more flexable and with a stronger core....my racewalk times will start to come down. If I can open up my hips more so that I can get better rotation...my stride will lengthen and I will travel further and faster..... it sounds SO easy when you just write it down hey. SIGH!!!
I got to the track and was pleased that the winds have died down and it was just a little chilly......shhhh tammy! 11 degs to me is just down right freezing now!!! how on earth did I train with frost on the ground..... beats me!
Any how we all warmed up and I had decided that I wanted to do 5km but rather than a fartlek I thought I would do 10 x 500m with a 3min rest....some I did a 2min rest but my fitness is not ready for that yet. But I am pleased to say that my times were pretty good. Some I would almost put into my "fast" bracket. :D
2:36 - my garmin will show a different time but I pressed the wrong button again.
if I could do that back to back for 5km that gives me a 26:03 ...... once apon a time I could do that....so I WILL do that again....watch this space!!!!
10 x 500m
