bit of a late start again today. Didn’t wake up until almost 4 o’clock and decided to head in on the early bus as per normal, record the weekly video and THEN do my 8 x 1km repeats.
it worked well, was a great idea, but with the sun up, it was much warmer than it would have been at 3am and despite having my water bottle with me, I was grateful for a public water fountain at the end!
today’s target pace was 6:00 according to the schedule, but that pace has started to become relatively easy to hit lately, so I pushed for 5:45. the final 1km was tough, my legs felt as though they were made of lead, and was more like 6:00 but I think on the first 7 I more or less averaged around 5:45.
