This week has had great sessions, and some not so great sessions. Here’s how they went down…
Tuesday – My first proper track session ever. I woke up stupidly early and headed to the track in Barnes to complete the following ladder workout.
400m – 1.30
800m – 3.20
1200m – 5.03
1600m – 6.56 (MY FASTEST EVER MILE!)
1200m – 5.06
800m – 3.17
400m – 1.31
Wednesday – Project Awesome & Barrecore
Thursday – Barrecore & a progression run. 9.02, 8.43, 8.26, 8.13, 8.01, 7.38. It was a beautiful evening, and although the run was tough at times, it was really enjoyable. Plus the Thames was the highest I’ve ever seen!
Friday – I had 10 miles on the schedule at 8.10 pace which just did NOT happen. I managed 8.5 miles at a struggle at 8.12 min mile pace before turning my Garmin off in a strop and running the rest of the way…to the coffee shop. An eye opener for how fast 8 min miles are!! I want to try this workout again on rested legs (and not at 5.45am!) soon!
Saturday – Lanrick Challenge – 15K. This was brutal and included 30+ obstacles, lake crossings, a swamp pit, fire jump, log challenges, a slide. It took us nearly 3 hours! So much fun running with my friend Katy and her fiancé, Sam, who live close by. Full race recap and more photos coming tomorrow!
Sunday – REST! Driving home in the car
