Mile reps

Back to Dangan. After a longish warm-up of 6.5km, the session was to be 5 x 1 mile reps with one minute recovery.

I didn't fancy running the extra 9 metres so I decided to run 4 lappers. The first one was a feeler with the intention of speeding up throughout. Oh yeah, the weather. Mild (10 degrees) but wet and a headwind on the home straight. Times were as follows:

5:22, 5:16, 5:14, 5:14, 5:08

One of those sessions where it seemed to get easier throughout. That said, the last one I pushed and was blowing at the end. Pleased enough especially when you constantly have to run wide to lap some of the slower runners.

Finished up with a 4 lap warm-down. Total for the session 16.1km. Then home for 30 minutes practice on the dartboard. Phil Taylor I am not, more like Elizabeth Taylor...
