I want to make my track session harder. I need to get maximum gain out of each session, so I will try hard to make these sessions count. I need fitness and speed back so longer speed sessions will give me this.
So today I opted for 6 x 800m and 1 x 200m this would give me 5km in total.
I started out a little conservative, its been a long time since I have done these and I remember how quickly they fatigue you. I felt good but a little off. I had 2 mins break and then started again. This time I felt better, hips were moving better and my stride felt long and easy.
My next few 800s were simular and while I was feeling tired I was able keep my pace up.....just.
My 800s are
Total time for 5km would be 26.11
