a good night’s sleep, and sleeping in slightly “late” meant I was raring to go for some 1km repeats action this morning.
by the time i’d finished them, i was worn out and ready to go back to sleep – and there were only 3 repeats to do!
having seen the impact this speedwork stuff had on the half marathon time and the 5km event this weekend just gone, i know the hard work is worth it, and it actually feels pretty good once you catch your breath and your legs start to get some feeling back 🙂

Got the day off to a cracking start with 3 x 1km repeats at a 5:00 per km pace.
I managed that pace, on average, across each 1km – with the pace mostly staying just below 5:00 (and as low as 4:30) but briefly blowing out to 5:30 on the 3rd repeat.
That 3rd one was hard work!!
35 x crunches x 5
